Abstract:

Because cellular polyethylene is 50 gas, it can easily be predicted that certain properties of the polyethylene will be degraded while others will be improved. The tensile strength, elongation and dielectric strength of the cellular composition are degraded when compared with solid polyethylene but are still in a range which permits the use of this compound in many applications. The power factor values are essentially the same. The dielectric constant is very much lower and hence the cellular material exhibits lower losses than the solid polyethylene. The very low density is desirable where reduced cost and weight are important.
