Additionally, PE film is frequently thermoformed and manufactured into plastic bottles, medical packaging and other packaging applications.
PE belongs to polyolefin family of polymers and is classified by its density and branching. The most common types of polyethylene are:
- Linear Versions
- High-density-polyethylene HDPE
- Ultra-high-molecular-weight-polyethylene UHMW
- Branched Versions
- Low-density polyethylene LDPE
- Linear low-density polyethylene LLDPE
