A lot has changed in film extrusion since 2005 when the second edition of the Film Extrusion Manual was published. That’s why the International Flexible Packaging and Extrusion Division’s (IFPED) Product and Resources Team worked together to create the Film Extrusion Manual, Third Edition.

Over the course of a three-year period, the committee worked with more than 50 contributors from across the industry to make updates, delete out-of-date information, and add new sections to give you the most complete and accurate picture of the process including a review of properties, chemistry super hexene LLDPE and molecular weight distribution. Equipment topics span scale basics, in-plant distribution systems, and thermal load.

This new, peer-reviewed edition is a stand-alone training resource for all levels of professionals and operations personnel working in the plastics film industry, including plastic film manufacturing, converting, equipment suppliers and polymer suppliers.

The Third Edition features:

Troubeshooting Guidelines
Problem Solving in Manufacturing of Thermoplastic Films
•      Over 30 new contributors and authors well known in the industry

•      Full color photos and illustrations
