What is PE?
Polyethylene (PE) is a thermoplastic material produced from the polymerisation of ethylene. A significant benefit of this type of plastic is its small environmental impact compared to other materials such as metal.
PE offers distinct advantages as a material, they offer:
- A Light weight design
- Chemical resistance
- Overall toughness
These benefits make it an ideal material for a broad variety of LED products and applications such as pots and furniture.
Polyethylene can be used in low temperatures without risk of brittle failure and in high temperatures without the risk of melting or burning. Thus, a major application for PE is outside use.
