Welcome

These two books offer practical and detailed evaluation of film extrusion, extrusion coating, coextrusion and lamination processes using polyethylenes for the production of multilayered flexible materials. The technology and products are in constant development and it is, therefore impossible to maintain a continuous up-date of every current innovation by this rapidly evolving industry. The body of work presented provides a comprehensive insight to film processors, extrusion coaters, laminators and converters of the various options that are available to produce tailor-made products and how to best exploit the available fabrication technologies.

These titles are aimed at a wide readership of technologists, engineers, marketers and students engaged in the development and production of multilayered products used in packaging and other industrial applications. The aim is to assist in optimizing product performance, evaluating the most cost effective solutions and provide useful information on the key polymers and films commercially available.
