Cross-Linked Polyethylene Market Detailed Analysis and Forecast by 2025
Cross-linked Polyethylene (XLPE) is derived from polyethylene and with a 3D molecular bond, which is formed within the plastic's structure. This molecular helps improving the overall characteristics such as abrasion, stress and chemical resistance, and heat deformation. A majority of XLPE used in tubing or piping is obtained from high-density polyethylene. Because XLPE contains cross-linked bonds within the polymer structure, it can change a thermoplastic into a thermoset.
