Polyethylene granules are one of the most important and most used polymers in the industry. Also this polymer comes from refining crude oil.
Polyethylene granules is a variety of thermoplastic polymers. It means that it turns into a solid state when it reaches its melting point and reaches the freezing point.
Polyethylene usually made up of a mixture of crude oil and natural gas. Some of its informal names are polythene or polyethylene. In addition, it is also called PE.
Polyethylene granule often uses to make plastic compounds. For to uses purely. This material used for a wide range of uses.
Types of polyethylene
- LDEP or light polyethylene
- LLDPE or Low-Density Polyethylene
Some manufacturers use this type of material for producting polyethene tubes for gaseous applications.
Application of polyethylene granules
Polyethylene granules widely uses in the various production. such as all kinds of plastic accessories which use in the kitchen and food industries. (LDPE) Low-density polyethene uses in the manufacture of light plastic containers as well as plastic bags.
LDPE uses in the manufacture of milk and liquid containers. And also, all kinds of plastic kitchen appliances. MDPE commonly used, in the production of plastic tubes and plumbing fittings.
LLDPE has a high degree of flexibility in the provision of flexible devices such as bending tubes. Recently, numerous studies carried out on the production of long chain and short-chain polyethylene.
These polyethylene are essentially HDPE with a number of lateral branches.
Also, these polyethylenes have a combination of HDPE strength and LDPE flexibility.
Production of various types of polyethylene
Polyethylene granules of various types of polyethylene pipes from high-density polyethylene materials is today one of the most important industries in the world.
In the case of polyethylene pipes, there are many factors that are being evaluated.
In general, the important issues that arise in the polyethylene pipe industry are as follows:
- The raw material for the production of polyethylene pipes
- A production method of all kinds of polyethylene pipes, kerugit tube and spiral pipe
- How to apply standard tests on polyethylene pipes
- The proper method for storing and storing polyethylene pipes
- Types of pipes and fittings of polyethylene and their size and dimensions
- Kind of Polyethylene link
- Types of installation of polyethylene pipe
