LDPE (LOW DENSITY POLYETHYLENE)

 

B.I.R.S. Machine & Supply distributor of LDPE sheet, rod & film.

 

LDPE, the first of the polyethylenes to be developed, it is a soft, stretchy plastic material. LDPE characterized by good toughness and flexibility, relatively low heat resistance, low-temperature impact resistance, and clarity in film form. Like the medium and high-density grades, LDPE has good resistance to chemical attack. At room temperature, it is insoluble in most organic solvents but is attacked by strong oxidizing acids. At higher temperatures, it becomes increasingly more susceptible to attack by aromatic, chlorinated and aliphatic hydrocarbons.

 

Polyethylene is susceptible to environmental and some chemical stress cracking. Wetting agents such as detergents accelerate stress cracking. Some co-polymers of LDPE are available with improved stress-crack resistance.
