[m-PE] The way to alleviate cold and thirst

The weather suddenly turned chilly. It's the season for warmth in the home.


Although we can't see it, pipes are spread out like a maze under the floor we always step on.
The indoor temperature rises from the floor heat generated by the circulation of hot water through these pipes.


Due to the nature of the location, cold and hot water pipes are not easy to replace until they become old or leak water. That's why they need to be made of highly durable material.


There are various types of pipes, and each has a different usage, advantages, and disadvantages. Specifically, PE-RT (Polyethylene of Raised Temperature) pipe is highly hygienic and processable, also used for drinking water.


LG Chem also produces m-PE (metallocene PE), which is used as a PE-RT pipe.


m-PE is a synthetic resin manufactured by polymerizing ethylene and is a material created with LG Chem's exclusive metallocene catalyst technology.


It has excellent resistance against high-temperature and pressure and long-term thermal stability. Due to its excellent processability (or workability) and mechanical properties, m-PE is used for various films,

containers, and pipes.


Paving the way for drinkable water and warmth, LG Chem's technology is always connected to our lives.
