Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) :
It has, therefore, less strong intermolecular forces as the instantaneous-dipole induced-dipole attraction is less.
This results in a lower tensile strength and increased ductility.
Low-density polyethylene (LDPE) is made by free radical polymerization.
The high degree of branching with long chains gives molten LDPE unique and desirable flow properties.
LDPE is used for both rigid containers and plastic film applications such as plastic bags and film wrap.
