Frequently asked questions
Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) is a strong and lightweight material that is resistant to both impact and chemicals. These properties make it a highly versatile material with a wide range of applications, especially in flexible products, such as: shrink-wrap, plastic bags, squeezable bottles, container lids and more.
Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) is a thermoplastic made from the monomer ethylene. Ethylene is made by heating crude oil to trigger a reaction that produces many different petroleum products, of which the ethylene monomer is one. Polyethylene is then made from ethylene through a process called polymerisation, in which ethylene monomers are bonded to form chains. The chains produced are polyethylene.
Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) is one of the five categories Polyethylene can be grouped into. It is the second lowest density Polyethylene group; being low density means that it has less mass compared to its volume that other types of Polyethylene. Reducing the density of the polymer changes its properties, such as increasing the flexibility of the material even at lower temperatures.
Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) is a highly versatile material due to the fact that it is inexpensive, highly flexible, moisture resistant, chemical resistant and high temperature resistant. This makes the material a popular choice due to its cost-effectiveness and wide range of applications.
Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) is a very safe plastic to use that poses no health risks. It is frequently used in food packaging, shopping bags, cling film, bread bags and many other food-related products, because it doesn’t leak chemicals over time. Additionally, LDPE is recyclable, meaning that it is one of the safest plastics for the environment - provided that it is disposed of properly.
Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) is a waterproof plastic. Materials such as plastics are able to resist water due to how closely bonded together the monomers (molecules) are during the polymerisation process. The polymer chains have low porosity (non absorbative) and hydrophobic (water repellent) properties that make it the perfect choice for many products that need to be waterproof.
Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) is a widely recycled plastic. This material has a wide range of applications in many industries from manufacturing, to construction, to food and beverage. Provided the entities who produce and store this waste handle it properly and send it to a suitable recycling facility, then this material can have a very long life cycle in which it can be reused multiple times.
