About High Density Polyethylene (HDPE):

High Density Polyethylene is known to be a thermoplastic polymer produced from the monomer ethylene. It is often called alkathene or polythene when utilised for HDPE pipes. Since it comes with a high strength-to-density ratio, HDPE is utilised in making plastic bottles, corrosion-resistant piping, geomembranes, and plastic lumber. HDPE is generally recycled and has the number 2 as its resin identification code.

Production Processes: 

  • Production of High Density Polyethylene via Slurry Process; via Solution Process; and via Gas Phase Process. 

In the gas phase process, ethene and hydrogen are combined, and the resulting mixture is passed over a Philips catalyst in a fixed bed reactor to finally achieve polymerisation reaction and produce High Density Polyethylene grains.
