Very-low-density polyethylene (VLDPE) :



VLDPE is defined by a density range from 0.880 to 0.915 g/cm3. VLDPE is a substantially linear polymer with high stages of short-chain branches, usually made by copolymerization of ethylene with short-chain alpha-olefins. VLDPE is most commonly produced using metallocene catalysts due to the greater co-monomer incorporation exhibited by these catalysts.

Very-low-density polyethylene are used for hose and tubing, ice and frozen food bags, food packaging and stretch wrap as well as impact modifiers when mixed with other polymers.
