Enable™ mPE resin for agricultural greenhouse films

Greenhouse film with tomatoes overlay

Enable metallocene polyethylene (mPE) resin offers the optimal combination of film processing and higher alpha olefin (HAO) performance benefits in a single, unique resin to meet the large lay-flat film requirements of the greenhouse film market.

With Enable mPE resin in both EVA resin-based and non-EVA resin greenhouse films, converters can expect:

  • Downgauging opportunities of up to 20% that result in raw material savings, lower film inventory, reduced transportation costs and lower unit costs
  • Improved toughness and dart impact resistance for less film damage during harsh weather and reduced labor costs for cladding
  • Enhanced optical properties for faster-rising greenhouse temperatures, leading to increased productivity and earlier selling of product
  • Sourcing simplicity to avoid blending complexity and errors, reduce resin inventory costs and eliminate or reduce the use of LDPE

Responding to the latest market trends, agricultural greenhouse films made with Enable mPE resin also provide better mechanical strength for improved aging and increased light transmission rates.
