It has an extremely low coefficient of friction, good chemical and corrosion resistance with excellent impact strength making it an extremely adaptive thermoplastic. Polyethylene is available in various grades, offering different properties.

They include:

  • Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE)Polyethylene
  • Medium-Density Polyethylene (MDPE)
  • High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE)
  • Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE)
