60507UV polyethylene is a heavy-duty injected polyethylene with good flowability and good mechanical properties. This grade with UV package is suitable for outdoor applications that require UV resistance and high rigidity.
Polyethylene or polyethylene is one of the simplest and cheapest polymers. And polyethylene is a waxy and inactive solid. It is obtained by polymerization of ethylene and is abbreviated as PE.
The ethylene molecule has a double bond C = C.
In the double polymerization process, each of the monomers is broken, and instead a simple bond is formed between the carbon atoms of the monomers, and the resulting product is a large molecule.
Heavy polyethylene has branched polymer chains, so the intermolecular strength in the chains is high and its tensile strength is higher than other polyethylenes. The reaction conditions and the type of catalyst used in the production of HDPE polyethylene are effective.
For the production of branched polyethylene, the polymerization method with Ziegler-Nata catalyst is usually used.
