8.2 THERMOPLASTIC COMMODITY PLASTICS: ETHENIC Summary: Polyethylenes can have significantly different properties, depending on the molecular weight (the length of the molecular chains). Polyethylenes are mostly low-strength polymers, but the UHMWPE grades can have strengths comparable to engineering plastics. Polypropylene has improved strength over general purpose polyethylenes.
