Its most outstanding properties include:
its lightness and flexibility,
its impermeability, inert (to the content),
non-toxic and low cost.
High tensile strength, compression and traction.
Resistant to low temperatures.
The PE can be of low density (PEBD or in English LDPE) and of high density (PEAD or in English HDPE )
Its most common applications are for containers, garbage containers, fish drawers, paint containers, gas, telephone or drinking water pipes, chain guides, mechanical parts, airtight containers ...
