The history of the business and technology that was responsiblefor the enormous growth of the global polyethylene industry fromthe laboratory discovery in 1933 to reach an annual production ofover 75 million metric tons in 2012 and become the leading plasticmaterial worldwide. This book is an in-depth look at the history ofthe scientists and engineers that created the catalysts and themethods used for the modern commercial manufacture of polyethyleneand its products.
The book outlines the processes used for the manufacture ofpolyethylene are reviewed which include the high-pressure processand the three low-pressure processes; slurry, solution and thegas-phase methods. The techniques used to fabricate polyethyleneinto end-use products are reviewed with a discussion ofblow-molding, injection molding, rotational molding, blown-film, cast-film and thermoforming are also discussed indetail.
