Polythene Bags

Polyethylene is one of the most widely used plastic types and is made from the polymerization of ethylene gas. They have extensive applications ranging from plastic bags and bottles to certain industrial parts and components. Depending upon the application, the density of the plastic is decided. For instance, high-density plastics which are absolutely non-permeable are used in making pipes, tanks, and so on. On the other hand, low-density plastic is used to make shopping bags, water bottles, and so on. These are categorized as high density, low density, linear low density polyethylene. This post explains the difference between custom HDPE, LDPE, and LLDPE bags.

Types of Polyethylene

The process of polymerization of ethylene results in long linear chains of hydrocarbons branching in various directions. The degree of this branching decides the type of polyethylene. Using various types of polyethylene has several advantages, such as they have very high melting and freezing points. Here are the different types of polyethylene used for a range of products from polythene bags to pipes and fixtures:
