Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Rod Manufacturer

Aug 08, 2019

Generally divided into: PE rod, polyethylene rod, HDPE rod, PE rod


Product Name: PE Rod: English name High Density Polyethylene, Chinese: Polyethylene rod. The PE rod is a highly crystalline, non-polar thermoplastic material. The original HDPE has a milky white appearance and a semi-transparent shape in a thin section.


PE sheets are excellent in resistance to most domestic and industrial chemicals. Certain types of chemicals can cause chemical corrosion, such as corrosive oxidants (concentrated nitric acid), aromatic hydrocarbons (xylene), and halogenated hydrocarbons (carbon tetrachloride). The polymer is non-hygroscopic and has good water vapor resistance and can be used for packaging purposes. HDPE has excellent electrical properties, especially high dielectric strength, making it suitable for wire and cable. Medium to high molecular weight grades have excellent impact resistance, both at ambient temperatures and even at low temperatures of -40F. The unique characteristics of various grades of HDPE are the appropriate combination of four basic variables: density, molecular weight, molecular weight distribution, and additives. Different catalysts are used to produce custom specialty polymer. These variables combine to produce HDPE grades for different applications; achieving the best balance in performance. It has good chemical stability and can resist the erosion of most acids, alkalis, organic solutions and hot water. Electrical insulation is good.


Chinese name: Polyethylene


English name: POLYETHYLENE


English name 2: PE


Molecular formula: (C2H4)n



Main characteristics

PE stick is odorless, non-toxic, feels like wax, has excellent low temperature resistance (minimum use temperature can reach -70~-100°C), good chemical stability, and can resist most acid and alkali corrosion (not resistant to oxidizing properties) Acid), insoluble in common solvents at normal temperature, low water absorption, excellent electrical insulation properties; low density; good toughness (also suitable for low temperature conditions); good tensile properties; good electrical and dielectric insulation; low water absorption; Low water vapor permeability; good chemical stability; tensile resistance; non-toxic and harmless.


However, PE sheets are very sensitive to environmental stresses (chemical and mechanical effects) and have poor heat aging resistance.


PE stick product application:

Medical appliance parts, seals, cutting boards, sliding profiles. Widely used in chemical, machinery, chemical, electric power, clothing, packaging, food and other industries. Widely used in gas transportation, water supply, sewage, agricultural irrigation, fine particle solids transportation, as well as oilfield, chemical and postal and telecommunications, especially in gas transportation.
