PE is a subcategory of Polyethylene. Its elastic modulus ranges from 7 to 29 MPa. Its tensile strength ranges from 2200 to 4000 MPa at break. Its elongation at break ranges from 200 to 750 %. Its hardness ranges from 17 to 45 Shore D. Its specific gravity ranges from 0.922 to 0.943. Its coefficient of thermal expansion ranges from 160 to 200 x 10-6/°C. Its melting temperature ranges from 103 to 110 °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 / vinyl acetate, 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.
Other common Polyethylene (PE) include PE, PE, PE, PE, PE, Rubber Modified PE, PE, PE, PE, 30% Glass Fiber Reinforced PE, Molding Grade PE, and Wire and Cable Grade PE.
