Products

TDE is one of the main national producers in Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE)

We have three manufacturing units. Of all the known thermoplastic materials, low-density polyethylene is one of the most widespread polymers due to its great versatility in the field of transformation and subsequent handling.

Polyethylene can be obtained from numerous polymerization processes. The process used in TDE is high pressure with the use of a radical initiator. The products obtained are highly transparent. Each production line is composed of the following four main sections.
