PE - Polyethylene

Polyethylene is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic. Classified by its density and branching, PE properties depend of their molecular weight and structure. Ductile and impact resistant, it feels waxy when touched.

Chemically stable it is a commodity thermoplastic widely used in packaging and film extrusion.
