PE 500 (Polyethylene) has a good chemical resistance to almost all acids and bases, detergents and hot water. PE has good insulation properties and is easy to weld. The operating temperature is from – 50 deg to + 90 deg. Low density, high toughness (also at low temperature), high elongation, very good electrical and dielectric properties, very low water absorption, low steam permeability, high chemical resistance, good protection against stress cracking, food safe, soft surface (low tensile strength), HF welding not recommended, natural colour is not weather resistant. Transport containers, pumps and valve parts, parts in the tank construction, components with medical applications, gaskets, sliding profles, components for the food industry.
