LOW DENSITY POLYETHYLENE SHEETS

Low Density Polyethylene Sheets are ideally suited to many applications in the Chemical, Lining and other industries due to its combination of properties. It has outstanding chemical and electrical properties, is nontoxic and has very low permeability to water.

Low Density Polyethylene Sheets have excellent chemical resistance to alkalis, salt solutions, most solvents and strong mineral acids however, they are not resistant to strong oxidizing agents, such as fuming nitric acid, hydrogen peroxide and chlorosulphuric acid. Prolonged attack from aliphatic, aromatic and chlorinated hydrocarbons can cause swelling.

It is important to point out some peculiarities of Low Density Polyethylene Sheets, which are:

  • Excellent flexibility.
  • Good impact strength even at low temperatures.
  • Excellent Chemical resistance to alkalis, salt solutions, most solvents and strong mineral acids.
  • Very low, moisture vapour permeability and can act as moisture barrier.
  • Can be fabricated using standard plastic methods for fixing and machining.
  • Can be cut, drilled or milled using standard metal working tools.
  • Riveting, welding, blanking and punching can all be carried out easily.

Low Density Polyethylene Sheets are suitable for application in the following industries:

  1. Chemical Industry (plant cladding)
  2. Lining Industry (tank lining)
  3. As Moisture barriers
  4. To make Waste bins, Seals, Gaskets, etc.
