Recycled LDPE Granule LDPE

Polyethylene LDPE has a high degree of short and long chain branching. It is one of the most simplest and common polymer. It has, therefore, less trong intermolecular forces as the instantaneous-dipole inducted-dipole attraction is less. This results in a lower tensile strength and increased ductility. LDPE is created by free radical polymerization. The high degree of branching with long chains gives molten LDPE unique and desirable flow properties. LDPE is used for both rigid containers and plastic film applications such as plastic bags and film wrap.

Chemical resistance

• Excellent resistance (no attack / no chemical reaction) to dilute and concentrated acids, alcohols, bases and esters
• Good resistance (minor attack / very low chemical reactivity) to aldehydes, ketones and vegetable oils
• Limited resistance (moderate attack / significant chemical reaction, suitable for short-term use only) to aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, mineral oils, and oxidizing agents
• Poor resistance, and not recommended for use with halogenated hydrocarbons.
