Polyethylene (Polythene) is one of the world’s most popular plastics. It is an enormously versatile polymer which is suited to a wide range of applications from heavy-duty damp proof membrane for new buildings to light, flexible bags and films.
Low-density polyethylene is a thermoplastic made from the monomer ethylene.LDPE is an acronym for low-density polyethylene. This type of plastic can be identified in many products., LDPE is primarily used in film applications because it is tough, flexible and relatively transparent. LDPE is also used to produce some flexible lids and bottles as well as in wire and cable applications.
Linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) is a substantially linear polymer (polyethylene), with significant numbers of short branches, commonly made by copolymerization of ethylene with longer-chain olefins.LLDPE resins ideal for food packaging, collation shrink films, liners, stretch films, and heavy duty shipping sacks. as well as lids, industrial containers, and closures.
