Global Extrusion Coating Market: Overview
Extrusion coating is a coating of a molten mesh of synthetic resin on the substrate; it is used to coat cellulose, notably polyethylene, paper, paperboard, aluminum foils, corrugated fiberboard, and plastic films. Some well-known resins are used in this process such as polypropylene, ethylene vinyl acetate copolymers, ionomers, and polyethylene. Extrusion coating is widely used to coat on thermoplastic material that includes PET, aluminum foil, BOPP film, woven fabric, paper, and others. Different applications of the extrusion coating are flexible packaging, liquid packaging, commercial packaging, transport packaging, photographic, sack linings, industrial wrappings, medical/hygiene, envelopes, and others. LDPE is the basic material that is extensively used in extrusion coating. It possesses several fundamental properties such as sealability and good moisture barrier. LDPE is used in various end-use industries such as medical & pharmaceutical, automotive, building & construction, and others.
