Description

GREENETHENE G-3904U is a HEXENE Co-polymer based Medium Density Polyethylene Resin (MDPE) in powder form which is designed for Rotational molding applications, containing antioxidants and UV12 stabilizers. Items produced by GREENETHENE G-3904U have an excellent stiffness and a very good balance between mechanical properties like impact strength and ESCR resistance. GREENETHENE G-3904U meets the requirement stipulated in standard IS:10141:2001 on “Specification for Polyethylene for safe use in contact with foodstuff, pharmaceuticals & Drinking Water”. It also conforms to IS 12701:1996 –“Specification For Rotational Moulded Polyethylene Water Storage Tanks.”
