LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene), also known as a polyolefin material, is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic material, with a continuous use temperature range of up to 200° F (93° C). It is categorized as a standard material, and offers strong chemical resistance, high flexibility, and low moisture absorption.
LDPE is a water-resistant, cost-efficient, long-lasting, and 100% recyclable multi-purpose material used for a variety of commercial and residential applications. Compared to high-density polyethylene, LDPE is more flexible and lighter in weight, making it an ideal solution for applications that are vacuum- or drape-formed. It exhibits excellent impact resistance, as well as chemical resistance, making it suitable for work surfaces requiring corrosion resistance. Light-transmission options range from translucent to opaque. LDPE is the material of choice in laboratory dispensing and wash bottles due to its excellent flexibility and the fact that it is virtually unbreakable. LDPE is also commonly used for die pads, hinges, impact pads, and orthotic and prosthetic devices.
