LDPELow Density Polyethylene

The latest advanced high-pressure technology
LDPE, which stands for low-density polyethylene, is a synthetic resin which is manufactured by polymerizing ethylene. It is one of the most commonly used plastics in our life. Its excellent processability, flexibility and transparency make it a raw material for transparent films, wire sheaths, and diverse wraps. LG Chem produces LDPE using the latest advanced high-pressure technology.

Use of Product

Coating film(interior) , Protective film, Food container lid, IV solution bag

HDPEHigh Density Polyethylene

Proven in the global market for its excellent processability and quality
HDPE, which stands for high-density polyethylene, is a synthetic resin made by polymerizing ethylene. It is one of the most commonly used plastics in our life. It is highly resistant to impact and cold and is often used for a variety of containers and plastic boxes. LG Chem produces HDPE using the cutting-edge manufacturing system based on the low-pressure polymerization method and its superior processability and quality is fully recognized around the world.
