Product Details

Low density polyethylene (LDPE) is an integral part of Mitsubishi Chemical Advanced Materials's polyolefin product line. LDPE is more flexible than HDPE, which makes it a good choice for prosthetic devices, most of which are either drape formed or vacuum formed.  
Its impact resistance makes it a natural for impact pads, while its easy machinability makes it a good choice for fabricated parts where chemical and corrosion resistance is demanded.

LDPE is stress relieved and a "natural" color. It is available in 48" x 96" sheets with gauge sizes ranging from 1/16" to 1".
