HDPE – high density polyethylene is defined by a density of greater or equal to 0.941 g/cm3. HDPE has a low degree of branching and thus stronger intermolecular forces and tensile strength. HDPE can be produced by chromium/silica catalysts, ziegler-natta catalysts or metallocene catalysts. The lack of branching is ensured by an appropriate choice of catalyst and reaction conditions. HDPE is used in products and packaging such as milk jugs, detergent bottles, margarine tubs, garbage containers and water pipes.
High-density polyethylene (HDPE) or polyethylene high-density (PEHD) is a polyethylene thermoplastic made from petroleum. It takes 1.75 kilograms of petroleum (in terms of energy and raw materials) to make one kilogram of HDPE. HDPE is commonly recycled, and has the number „2” as its recycling symbol.
HDPE could be offered for different applications:
– HDPE polyethylene film (foil) extrusion
– HDPE blow molding
– HDPE polyethylene pipe extrusion
– HDPE injection molding
JSC „Litchema” is offering prime and off-grade HDPE polyethylene from these producers:
– HIP PETROCHEMIJA
