HD-5000S or 5000s is a grade-grade extruded heavy-duty polyethylene (HDPE) designed for the production of multi-strand ropes. In addition to high tensile strength, this grade also has good processability.
Polyethylenes are a family of thermoplastics obtained by polymerization of ethylene gas (C2H4).
Due to the structure of the polymer chain, it has a higher crystallinity than other types of polyethylene; Therefore, it has a more compact structure and a higher density, which is why it is called heavy polyethylene.
The density of heavy polyethylene is between 0.95 and 0.97 grams per cubic centimeter. Chains of heavy polyethylene molecules have few side branches, so it is possible for the molecular chains to come closer together and form crystals.
