LDPE Injection Molding

LDPE is a thermoplastic that creates parts with impact resistance and good flexibility


Low density polyethylene or LDPE is an all-purpose resin with impact resistance, crack resistance, and excellent flexibility.

Key benefits of LDPE:

  • Excellent aesthetics
  • Flexibility
  • Impact resistant and ESCR
