PE is a subcategory of Polyethylene. Its elastic modulus ranges from 38 to 75 MPa. Its flexural modulus ranges from 40 to 105 MPa. Its tensile strength ranges from 1900 to 4000 MPa at break. Its elongation at break ranges from 100 to 965 %. Its hardness ranges from 55 to 56 Shore D. Its specific gravity ranges from 0.918 to 0.94. Its melting temperature ranges from 122 to 124 °C. Its molding pressure ranges from 5 to 15 MPa.
Polyethylene, also known as PE, is a thermoplastic polymer. Common trade names include Marlex, Alathon, and Hostalen. low and medium density, linear 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.
