Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE)



LDPE can be combined with fillers, reinforcing agents, additives, and other polyethylenes as well as other polymers.  (RDC 6/8/2012)


“LDPE is widely used for manufacturing various containers, dispensing bottles, wash bottles, tubing, plastic bags for computer components, and various molded laboratory equipment. Its most common use is in plastic bags. Other products made from it include:

 Trays and general purpose containers

 Corrosion-resistant work surfaces

 Parts that need to be weldable and machinable

 Parts that require flexibility, for which it serves very well

 Very soft and pliable parts

 Six pack rings

 Juice and milk cartons is made of liquid packaging board, a laminate of paperboard and LDPE (as the water-proof inner and outer layer), and often with of a layer of aluminum foil (thus becoming aseptic packaging).

 Parts of computer hardware, such as hard disk drives, screen cards, and optical disc drives

 Playground slides

 Plastic wraps”
