PE is a subcategory of Polyethylene. Its elastic modulus ranges from 155 to 158 MPa. Its flexural modulus ranges from 145 to 225 MPa. Its tensile strength ranges from 3200 to 4500 MPa at break. Its compressive strength ranges from 2700 to 3600 MPa. Its Izod Impact strength ranges from 0.4 to 4 J/cm. Its elongation at break ranges from 10 to 1200 %. Its hardness ranges from 66 to 73 Shore D. Its specific gravity ranges from 0.952 to 0.965. Its coefficient of thermal expansion ranges from 59 to 110 x 10-6/°C. Its melting temperature ranges from 130 to 137 °C. Its molding pressure ranges from 12 to 15 MPa.

Polyethylene, also known as PE, is a thermoplastic polymer. Common trade names include Marlex, Alathon, and Hostalen. high density homopolymer 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.
