HDPE Pipe And PE Pipe And What Is The Difference?

- Sep 21, 2017-

PE polyethylene plastic, a plastic base, plastic bags and other plastic film is PE.


HDPE high density polyethylene plastic, English name "High Density Polyethylene", referred to as the "HDPE.HDPE" is a kind of high crystallinity, non-polar thermoplastic resin. The original state of HDPE milky white appearance, in a small section in a certain degree of translucent.PE has excellent resistance to most of life and industry chemical properties. Some kinds of chemicals will produce chemical corrosion, such as corrosive oxidant (nitric acid), aromatic hydrocarbons (xylene) and halogenated hydrocarbons (carbon tetrachloride). The polymer is not hygroscopic and has good waterproof steam, can be used in packaging applications.HDPE has good electrical properties, especially dielectric the electric intensity is high, so it is suitable for wire and cable. Medium to high molecular weight grades has excellent impact resistance, even at room temperature in -40F low temperature so.


HDPE pipe is a thermoplastic polyolefin made from ethylene copolymer. Although HDPE has been introduced in 1956, this plastic has not yet reached its mature level. This general material is still developing its new uses and markets
