Application and characteristics of PE-HD

High Density Polyethylene (HDPE for short) is a non-polar thermoplastic resin with high crystallinity. The appearance of the original HDPE is milky white, and the thin section is translucent to a certain extent. PE has excellent resistance to most domestic and industrial or chemical preservation properties, and will produce chemical and acid resistant fermentation products….

Application and classification of Teflon

Teflon is divided into several basic types: PTFE, FEP, PFA, ETFE: 1. Teflon PTFE: PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) non-stick coating can be used continuously at 260°C, with a maximum operating temperature of 290-300°C, extremely low friction coefficient, good wear resistance and excellent chemical stability . 2. Teflon FEP: FEP (fluorinated ethylene propylene copolymer) non-stick coating melts and…

Application and characteristics of PVC

PVC is the abbreviation of polyvinyl chloride and its English name is Polyvinylchloride. The main component is polyvinyl chloride. It is bright in color, corrosion-resistant, strong and durable. It is reinforced by adding some toxic auxiliary materials such as plasticizers and anti-aging agents in the manufacturing process. Its heat resistance, toughness, ductility, etc., so its…
