What is Blown Film Extrusion?
Blown film extrusion is a manufacturing process used to create plastic film products of various thicknesses and sizes. The process involves melting plastic pellets and extruding them through a die to form a tube-like shape, which is then inflated like a balloon. As the balloon expands, it is cooled and flattened to create a thin, flat film.
The blown film extrusion process is versatile, and it can be used to create a wide range of plastic film products.

Products Made by Blown Film Extrusion Line
Blown film extrusion lines can produce a wide range of films with varying properties and characteristics, depending on the specific requirements of the application. Here are some examples of films that can be produced using blown film extrusion lines:
- LDPE (low-density polyethylene) films: These films are soft, flexible, and have good clarity. They are commonly used for general-purpose packaging applications, such as bags and wraps.
- LLDPE (linear low-density polyethylene) films: These films have better tensile strength and puncture resistance compared to LDPE films. They are used for applications that require higher strength and durability, such as heavy-duty bags and packaging films for industrial products.
- HDPE (high-density polyethylene) films: These films have excellent stiffness, impact strength, and environmental stress cracking resistance. They are used for applications that require high strength and toughness, such as garbage bags and agricultural films.
- EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) films: These films have good optical properties, low-temperature flexibility, and excellent heat-sealing properties. They are used for applications that require good transparency, such as packaging films for fresh produce and frozen foods.
- Barrier films: These films are designed to provide a high barrier to moisture, oxygen, and other gases. They are used for applications that require extended shelf life and preservation of food products, such as vacuum packaging and modified atmosphere packaging.
- Shrink films: These films are designed to shrink tightly around a product when heated, providing tight and secure packaging. They are used for applications that require a tamper-evident seal, such as beverage multipacks and retail packaging.
Overall, blown film extrusion lines are versatile and can produce a wide range of films with different properties and characteristics to meet the specific needs of the application. Whether you require food packaging films, agricultural films, industrial films, or specialty films, we have the expertise and equipment to help you succeed.
