Ethylux is Westlake Plastics’ family of polyethylene products (PE).  Ethylux LDPE and Ultra-Ethylux HDPE are cost-effective material options for a variety of end uses where chemical resistance and practical toughness are important.  Both LDPE and HDPE offer low coefficients of friction and moderate levels of wear resistance.

    Ethylux Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) is a semi crystalline polyolefin with a lower density and a higher degree of ductility than Ultra Ethylux/HDPE. Ethylux Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) has excellent chemical resistance and low moisture absorption properties. Ethylux Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) is a good candidate for chemical environments, food processing and packaging applications.

    Ultra Ethylux High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is one of the most widely utilized thermoplastics due to its relative low cost, weight/density, and range of properties. Although not recommended for high load, Westlake Plastics offers a normalized grade which enhances stress relief characteristics for applications requiring more extensive machining.
