Characteristics of PE

Generally, PE has the following characteristics:


  1. It is possible to control the density of PE by copolymerization of α-olefin and to produce various types of PE.

  2. PE shows good processability, and can be molded by various methods such as extrusion, blow molding, and injection molding.

  3. Due to excellent mechanical properties especially at low temperature, PE is used for various applications in cold climates.

  4. PE has good electrical property, weatherability, and chemical resistance, consequently PE is used for various applications such as electrical insulation, bottle with certain chemicals.
