Polyethylene (Polythene) Summary

Description: A vinyl polymer made from ethylene. It can be branched or linear. Branched or low-density polyethylene is tough and pliable but not to the same degree as linear polyethylene. Linear or high-density polyethylene has a greater hardness and tensile strength. Polyethylene is used in a variety of products, including implants and prostheses.

Also Known As: Polythene; Low-Density Polyethylene; High Density Polyethylene; HDPE; LDPE Show All >>
