Tensile Values

ECO PLASTICS polyethylene sheets are ideal for use in commercial, industrial and agricultural operations. The analysis and testing summary results below are based on products manufactured by ECO PLASTICS.

Tensile Values For Various Colours

ColoursTensile strength @

White22.412.4105
Terracotta21.89.538
Green21.811.7118
Blue21.19.150

From the table it can be seen that little or no difference in tensile strength can be attributed to various pigmentation.

The tensile strength at yield did not appreciably change during the accelerated aging period that shows that this physical property is virtually unaffected during a simulated ten-year outdoor exposure.
