Polyethylene(PE)

Polyethylene (abbreviated PE) or polythene (IUPAC name polyethene or poly (methylene) is the most common plastic. The annual global production is approximately 80 million tonnes. Its primary use is in packaging (plastic bag, plastic films, geomembranes, containers including bottles, etc.).

Linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) is a substantially linear polymer (polyethylene), with significant numbers of short branches, commonly made by copolymerization of ethylene with longer-chain olefins. Linear low-density polyethylene differs structurally from conventional low-density polyethylene (LDPE)…
Low-density polyethylene (LDPE) is a thermoplastic made from the monomer ethylene. It was the first grade of polyethylene using a high pressure process via free radical polymerization. Its manufacture employs the same method today. The…
High-density polyethylene (HDPE) or polyethylene high-density (PEHD) is a polyethylene thermoplastic made from petroleum. Known for its high strength to density ratio, HDPE is commonly used in the production of plastic bottles, corrosion-resistant piping, geomembranes,…
