LDPE has a broad range of applications due to its attractive mechanical properties and low cost. The greatest demand for LDPE resins is associated with film and sheet end-use, representing most of the total production. LDPE is used mainly in films and sheets (pallet and shrink wrapping, heavy-duty sacks, food packaging, refuse bags, storage bags, agricultural film, and industrial sheeting); extrusion coating (thin coating on paper, aluminum foil, paperboard, and polymeric materials); wire and cable applications (insulation); injection molding (mainly caps and closures); and blow molding (in applications requiring clarity, flexibility, and environmental stress crack resistance are required).

LDPE (a.k.a. Low Density Polyethylene) the first thermoplastic polyolefin used commercially, is one of the three main types of polyethylene. LDPE differs from high density polyethylene (HDPE) and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) primarily due to its unique molecular structure, where large amounts of long-chain branching, impart different rheological behavior in both shear and extension. LDPE offers an unparalleled combination of low cost, ease of fabrication and balance of physical properties (toughness, flexibility and transparency). The first thermoplastic polyolefin used commercially, LDPE is still widely used in a wide range of applications.
