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.
Benefits of Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE)
