Properties of a polythene PE sheet
Polythene, HPDE or PE sheets are reasonably priced. The low price is caused by the inexpensive raw materials that are required, and by the relatively low weight of the end product. Therefore, polythene is often implemented when large areas need to be covered by a lid or protective cover. Polythene is a thermoplastic material, that is easy to weld for most do-it-yourselvers. Gluing the material at home, on the other hand, it not recommended: this is generally only done by professionals.
