Polyethylene White wax-like translucent material, soft and tough, lighter than water, non-toxic, with superior dielectric properties. Easy to burn and continue burning after leaving the fire. Water permeability is low, and the permeability of organic vapor is larger. The transparency of polyethylene decreases with the increase of crystallinity and the transparency increases with the increase of molecular weight.
Polyethylene has excellent chemical stability, at room temperature, hydrochloric acid, hydrofluoric acid, phosphate, formic acid, amine, sodium hydroxide, potassium hydroxide and other chemical substances corrosion.
Polyethylene is suitable for high performance product labels such as water, oil and chemicals, which are used in cosmetics, shampoo, washing and other daily chemicals labels that are resistant to moisture and extrusion requirements in the process of use. Excellent softness, especially suitable for plastic bags. can also be used for environmental requirements and can not use PVC label materials.
Polyethylene can be used in blow molding, extrusion, injection molding and other methods of processing, widely used in the manufacture of films, hollow products, fiber and daily necessities.
