Polyethylene

PE is by far the largest volume commercial polymer. This thermoplastic is available in a range of flexibilities and other properties depending on the production process, with high density materials (HDPE) being the most rigid. Polyethylene can be formed by a wide variety of thermoplastic processing methods and is particularly useful where moisture resistance and low cost are required. The options we carry are LDPE (low Density Polyethylene), HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) and UHMW (Ultra High Molecular Weight).
