About 60 g W-EPDM powder was taken and exposed to microwave, and the exposure of microwave for 90 sec at 184[degrees]C was found optimized after several trials with composites from MW-treated W-EPDM (MW-EPDM) and LDPE.
Combined with Qapco's existing LDPE facilities, this pushes up the country's output to 700,000 metric tons of LDPE per annum.
The plant will increase Qapco's output of low-density polyethylene to 700,000 metric tonnes per annum, with LDPE 3 making up nearly half of it.
It is possible that high density discarded plastics such as PET or HDPE, and/or LDPE may be used as support for biofilm formation, as long as these inert materials have a high surface area, roughness and microbial affinity.
LDPE is used to make many thin, flexible products from plastic bags shrink-wrap and stretch film for food and medicines as well as coatings for paper cartons for liquids and disposable beverage cups.
