Versalis Eraclene® DB 506 High Density Polyethylene
Categories: Polymer; Thermoplastic; Polyethylene (PE); High Density (HDPE)

Material Notes: Eraclene DB 506 is a high density polyethylene resin (HDPE), hexane copolymer, obtained by gas phase technology process. The main properties of Eraclene DB 506 are emphasized when it is used for production of drip irrigation pipe. The balanced molecular weight distribution, density and the low content of gels are successfully combined in order to provide excellent mechanical properties, seal ability, melt strength and draw ability at high extrusion rate.

Application: Eraclene DB 506 can be easily used in blend with LLDPE and LDPE grades to modify the final properties of the drip irrigation pipe according to the specific needs. For outdoor application, it is strongly suggested to add Anti UV. The combined usage of these additives together with Carbon Black can provide outstanding resistance to UV radiation.
