PE material is soft, flexible and transparent and has good resistance to tearing and moisture.
Lightweight polyethylene (LDPE) has branched chains. These chains can not bond well together, which makes the intermolecular force weak and has less tensile strength. Important features of this type of polyethylene are flexibility and the possibility of degradation by microorganisms. This material is used for the production of polyethylene pipes, toys, household utensils, electrical and telecommunication wires, films, car parts.
