Polyethylene, also known as Polythene or Polizene, has good mechanical and physical characteristics that allow it to be used in the most varied sectors of the industry. The main properties of Polyethylene or Polythene or Polizene are impact resistance, wear resistance, low friction coefficient, resistance to corrosion and chemical products, it also enjoys good dimensional stability and is easily workable. Polyethylene has a low specific weight and this makes it cheaper compared to other materials.
POLYETHYLENE PE 300
In this way, due to its molecular density of 300,000 molecules, it is similar to PE 500, but has greater rigidity and less resistance to repeated impacts. It is however the most used one.
POLYETHYLENE PE 500
In this way, due to its molecular density of 500,000 molecules, compared to PE 300 it is denser, with better mechanical characteristics and wear resistance and better workability.
POLYETHYLENE PE 1000
In this way it is called for its molecular density of about 1,000,000 molecules, so it is denser than PE 500 polyethylene, it has better mechanical characteristics, greater wear resistance, better smoothness since it has a lower friction coefficient. It has an excellent impact resistance even repeated several times. Polyethylene is produced in pressed and rectified slabs in standard commercial thicknesses or in bars, among the most commonly used colors are green, black and natural white.
