What is Polyethylene?
Polyethylene is a synthetic resin produced from ethylene. It is now a representative thermoplastic synthetic resin, with more than 2.5 million tons used annually in Japan.
In general, those with a density of less than 0.94 are called low-density polyethylene and those with a density of 0.94 or greater are called high-density polyethylene. Low-density polyethylene is used for films, laminates, and electric wire sheathing, while high-density polyethylene is used for hollow containers, pipes, films, and containers for detergents, industrial chemical cans, and gasoline tanks.
PE products are everywhere around us. PE is processed by a wide range of methods such as film extrusion, injection molding, rotary molding, blow molding and extrusion into various products to suit specific applications.
