LDPE

Low-Density-Polyethylene is a branched, low molecular and sparse crystalline polyethylene. It is mainly used for fusing of small-parts that do not require high fastness.

The product series ROWALIT® H covers usually a melting range of 100-115°C.

Application examples are:

  • Carpet industry (carpet backing)
  • Automotive (floor units, interior liners)
  • Construction industry (reinforcements)
