Product Description
SABIC® LDPE 1808AN00 is an additive free autoclave grade with a low gel level, a high purity and a specific broad molecular weight distribution. The material can be processed at high speeds, thanks to it's excellent draw down properties and superior web stability. The grade has a very low gel level.

SABIC® LDPE 1808AN00 combines high toughness with good flexibility and reasonable environmental stress cracking resistance and is therefore used for flexible and tough articles.
