Classification :

Polyethylene divided into various categories based on its density and branching.

Its mechanical properties depend on some element such as the extent and type of branching, the crystal structure and the molecular weight.

The main polyethylene grades are HDPE, LLDPE and LDPE.

• Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE)
• Ultra-low-molecular-weight polyethylene (ULMWPE or PE-WAX)
• High-molecular-weight polyethylene (HMWPE)
• High-density polyethylene (HDPE)
• High-density cross-linked polyethylene (HDXLPE)
• Cross-linked polyethylene (PEX or XLPE)
• Medium-density polyethylene (MDPE)
• Linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE)
• Low-density polyethylene (LDPE)
• Very-low-density polyethylene (VLDPE)
• Chlorinated polyethylene (CPE)
