Polyethylene is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic that belong to the category of volume plastics. The material is divided in groups of LDPE, LLDPE, MDPE and HDPE and have increasing density from the LDPE to HDPE and thus rigidity.
- Low price and density
- Excellent chemical resistance
- Insignificant moisture absorption
- Impact toughness down to -40 C, and in some cases lower.
- Poor heat resistance
