2. Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE): It is similar to HDPE in composition but less rigid. It is manufactured using a high pressure free radical polymerization process. It is not reactive at room temperatures to dilute solvents. Its density is lower due to its loosely packed molecular structure. This type of plastic is used for squeeze type of bottles.
