BAREFOOT POLYETHYLENE      Resins which have no additives (slip or antiblock). PE films made with barefoot resins are always very slow slip / high COF (Coefficient of Friction)
BIODEGRADABLE PLASTIC   A degradable plastic in which the degradation results from the action of naturally occurring micro-organisms such as bacteria. There are a multitude of evolving standards. Visit our biodegradable plastic film page to learn more.
BUTENE   Can be used as a monomer in the formation of polymers, most commonly linear low density polyethylene, hence the name "butane LLDPE".
