LDPE Granules

  • LDPE Granules Low-density polyethylene (LDPE) is an easily recycled, versatile thermoplastic
  • LDPE is formed into thin films for use as grocery bags, food wrapping material, power cable sheathing and worktable coating
  • Laboratory containers used in chemical research are often made from primarily LDPE

LDPE Resistance

  • Excellent resistance (no attack) to dilute and concentrated Acids, Alcohols, Bases and Esters
  • Good resistance (minor attack) to Aldehydes, Ketones and Vegetable Oils
  • Limited resistance (moderate attack 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

LDPE Fabrication

  • Films & Liners
  • Carry Bags
  • Tarpaulins
  • Good for parts that require flexibility
  • Trays & containers
  • Food storage and laboratory
  • Corrosion resistant work surfaces
