Applications

Where the durability and impact strength are important such as Food containers, Packaging, Caps, House wares, Furniture, Appliances, Toys.

Key Properties

Excellent chemical resistance. Can be used with boiling water. Rigid, tough, odourless, with high impact strength & good mechanical properties. Easy to weld with hot gas. Difficult to paint & cement.

Strengths

  • Low cost
  • Good chemical resistance against most inorganic acids, alkalis, and salts
  • Good resistance to environmental stress cracking when in contact with alcohols, esters, detergents, or polar hydrocarbons
  • Very good fatigue resistance
  • Very low density
  • Excellent dielectric properties
  • More rigid than PE and retains mechanical properties at elevated temperatures
  • Mechanical and electrical properties unaffected by submersion in water
  • FDA compliant
  • Good resistance to steam sterilization
  • Excellent processing characteristics
  • Can be joined by hot-gas, hot-tool, induction, or friction welding

Limits

  • Poor resistance to UV, needs to be stabilised. Stabilised grades are available at a higher cost.
  • Embrittles below -20°C
  • Low upper service temperature, 90-120°C
  • Attacked by highly oxidizing acids, swells rapidly in chlorinated solvents and aromatics
  • Heat-ageing stability is adversely affected by contact with metals
  • Post moulding dimensional changes due to crystallinity effects
  • Limited impact resistance
  • Low scratch resistance
  • Poor paint adhesion
  • Edges cannot be polished very highly
