HAZE  

Measure of clarity of film. Expressed in percent. For example, a resin which has a haze of 5.5 allows 94.5% of light to pass through the film. Learn more about ASTM D 1003.

Haze is crucially important for optimum product presentation at retail, especially when ink coverage is over 90 %

HEAT SEAL  
     
HEXENE    Used as a monomer in the formation of polymers, usually LLDPE resin. Stronger film strength than butene. Visit our blog to learn more about the varieties of LLDPE.
     
HIGH DENSITY
POLYETHYLENE
( HDPE )
  Polyethylene resin with a density over .940 gm/cc. Much stiffer than low density polyethylene. Common examples of HDPE are milk jugs, motor oil bottles and plastic grocery sacks.
