The article presents information on Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin-based Extrusion Dies Industries (EDI) LLC's microlayer technology. Film with 80 layers, each 50 microns thick, is possible through this technology. A patented system developed by Dow Chemical Co. of Midland, Michigan is the basis of the technology. The technology is licensed from Dow. Barrier properties can be improved and high-cost materials can be used more efficiently through the multilayer system. Fewer web breaks, particularly in films stretched after extrusion, and new property combinations are the other possible benefits.
