What Are The Characteristics Of HDPE Raw Materials?

Sep. 05, 2018

High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), also known as low pressure polyethylene, is a high crystallinity, non-polar thermoplastic resin. The original HDPE has a milky white appearance and a semi-transparent shape in a thin section. PE has excellent resistance to most living and industrial chemicals.

HDPE is a highly crystalline, non-polar thermoplastic resin. High-density polyethylene is a white powder granular product, non-toxic, odorless, density in the range of 0.940 ~ 0.976 g / cm3; Crystallinity of 80% ~ 90%, softening point of 125 ~ 135 ° C, the use temperature up to 100 °C; Melting temperature 120~160 °C for materials with larger molecules, it is recommended that the melting temperature range is between 200~250 °C. HDPE has good heat resistance and cold resistance, good chemical stability, high rigidity and good mechanical strength.

1. Dielectric properties, environmental stress crack resistance is also good. Hardness, tensile strength and creep are better than low density polyethylene; 

2. Wear resistance, electrical insulation, toughness and cold resistance are better, but slightly lower than low density insulation;

3. Good chemical stability, insoluble in any organic solvent at room temperature, resistant to corrosion by acids, alkalis and various salts;

4. The film has low permeability to water vapor and air and low water absorption;

5. Poor aging resistance, environmental cracking resistance is not as good as low-density polyethylene, especially thermal oxidation will reduce its performance. Therefore, the resin needs to add antioxidants and UV absorbers to improve the improvement. High-density polyethylene film has a low heat distortion temperature under stress, so pay attention to this application.
