PE is a subcategory of Polyethylene. Its elastic modulus ranges from 4 to 7.5 MPa. Its tensile strength ranges from 1600 to 2100 MPa at break. Its compressive strength ranges from 3000 to 3600 MPa. Its elongation at break ranges from 700 to 750 %. Its hardness ranges from 27 to 38 Shore D. Its coefficient of thermal expansion ranges from 160 to 250 x 10-6/°C. Its molding pressure ranges from 1 to 20 MPa.

Polyethylene, also known as PE, is a thermoplastic polymer. Common trade names include Marlex, Alathon, and Hostalen. ethylene / ethyl acrylate, low density copolymer It has good toughness at low temperatures and is inexpensive. PE is the largest volume commodity plastic. It is widely used in blow-molded beverage bottles, auto gas tanks, and extruded pipes.
