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.

Benefits of polyethylene

The advantages of low-density polyethylene (LDPE) are closely related to its properties and can be summarized as follows:

  • Flexibility and durability

    LDPE can stretch significantly without breaking, making it ideal for products such as plastic bags and plastic films.

  • Waterproofing

    Its moisture resistance makes it suitable for storage containers, chemical tank linings and water pipes, preventing liquids from leaking.

  • High impact resistance

    High impact resistance at low temperatures and good weather resistance.

  • Chemical resistance

    Its high resistance to chemicals makes it suitable for food packaging and hygienic work surfaces.

  • Extreme temperature resistance

    It can maintain its shape in a temperature range of -40ºC to 90ºC, which makes it suitable for applications in extreme conditions.

  • Electrical insulation

    Its property as a poor conductor of electricity makes it useful for insulation in electrical wires and cables.

  • Cost-effectiveness and recyclability

    It is economical to produce and widely recyclable, making it attractive for mass production and reducing environmental concerns.

  • Good transparency

    Good transparency and absence of odor and toxicity.

Low-density polyethylene

The use of a reactor-based process with the characteristics of TDE provides numerous advantages for the quality of the product, such as:

  • High product homogeneity

    Very important factor from the transformation point of view, as it has a great influence on stability and mechanical properties. This homogeneity is achieved by a precise control of the polymerization at any point of the reactor, which leads to a high stability of the reaction.

  • Possibility of achieving a narrow molecular weight distribution

    Leads to very good flow rheological properties and consequently exceptional optical characteristics, especially in high and medium transparency grades.

  • Versatility in reaction control

    Allows to obtain polymers with well-defined molecular structures, according to each future application.

  • Ease of density variation

    Relative ease of density variation over very wide values.
