The blown film process is used to produce a wide variety of products, ranging from simple monolayer films for bags to very complex multilayer structures used in food packaging. Multilayer film structures may be made by blown film coextrusion and combines two or more molten polymer layers. 3 Schematic of a film die. 7 is a schematic representation of a three-layer blown film die,4 and Fig. 5 Schematic of a blown film process. 11 Calendering is a specialty process for the manufacture of sheet and film products, primarily polyvinyl chloride (PVC), although certainly other materials such as modified polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), ABS, and other thermoplastics can also be calendered.

8 Inter- and Intramolecular Attractions in Polymers The attractive forces between different polymer chains or segments within polymer chains play a large part in determining a polymer’s properties. 4, atoms can have polarity or dipole moments. Since negative charges are attracted to the opposite positive charges and repelled by like charges, it is possible to generate attractions that lead to certain structures. 1 Hydrogen Bonding One of the strongest dipole interactions is the attraction of some oxygen atoms to hydrogen atoms, even though they are covalently bonded to other atoms.

These processes will be discussed in the following sections. 6 Web Coating There are many web coating processes; most, but not all, of which are discussed briefly in this section. Web coating is used to apply thin layers to films for surface treatments or decoration. For more detail, see Refs. 6 and 7. The selection of which process to use depends on the properties of the film and the coating being applied. 1 Gravure Coating layers to insure that they will be stuck together. The adhesive is often applied as a coating.
