LLDPE has better flexibility than HDPE as is less crystalline. Can be factory fabricated – folded and flaked. Good multiaxial strain properties. They are more flexible than HDPE (one-quarter of the stiffness of HDPE).
Excellent large scale puncture resistance compared with HDPE.
Good resistance to stress cracking.
LLDPE has a far less pronounced yield point at approx. 40% strain (can elongate up to 40% without damage to the polymer’s structure).
Common uses are prefabricated “drop-in” liners, water storage, landfill capping systems. pond and dam lining.
