Product Description

LDPE (low density polyethylene) is a soft, flexible, lightweight plastic material. LDPE has good chemical and impact resistance and is easy to fabricate and form. LDPE is used in the manufacture of a wide range of products, including grocery bags, plastic wrap and film, flexible packaging material, and injection molded parts.

LDPE is softer and more flexible than HDPE. It also has a lower melting point (115° C) and is more transparent. Compared to HDPE, it is more likely to crack under stress.

LDPE Properties:

  • LDPE Melting point: 105 to 115°C
  • Density of LDPE: 0.910–0.940 g/cm3
  • Chemical resistance of LDPE:
  • Good resistance to alcohols, dilute alkalis and acids
  • Limited resistance to aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, mineral oils, oxidizing agents and halogenated hydrocarbons
  • Temperature resistance up to 80°C continuously and 95°C for shorter times.
  • Low cost polymer with good processability
  • High impact strength at low temperature, good weatherability
  • Excellent electrical insulating properties
  • Very low water absorption
  • FDA compliant
  • Transparent in thin film form
