LDPE is a well-known thermoplastic that is produced from the monomer ethylene. LDPE is not reactive at room temperatures, except by potent oxidizing agents. LDPE can withstand temperatures of 80 °C continuously or about 90 °C or about 194 °F for a short span of time. LDPE is generally used as packaging.
Chemical Formula of LDPE:
- Low density Polyethylene
- Manufacturing containers
- Dispensing bottles
- Plastic bags
- Computer components
- Moulded products
- Laboratory equipments
- Production of LDPE via Polymerisation
LDPE is produced by the method of the polymerisation of ethylene in a tubular reactor. This method takes place at a high temperature. After ethylene is cooled, compressed and transformed into a polyethylene, it is mixed with additives to obtain the product in a molten form. The obtained product is cooled and cut into pellets to finally produce LDPE.
Procurement Resource also provides the production cost analysis of LDPE.
