To manufacture a polyethylene film containing zeolite particles for the packaging of foods six manufacturing methods were tried: hot pressing, addition of zeolite to molten polyethylene and dissolved polyethylene solution, coating polyethylene beads with zeolite in a revolving heating pan, extrusion of polyethylene beads with zeolite and hot pressing of the extruded mix film. The experiments were repeated with three different particle sizes of zeolites received from the Bigadi¸c mine belonging to Etibank. The film produced by the hot pressing of co-extruded zeolite-polyethylene film was found to be quite satisfactory as a packaging material
