MSDS sheets for Drader’s Welding Rod

  • ABS (C8H8)x· (C4H6)y·(C3H3N)z
    Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene is a common thermoplastic. Its glass transition temperature (ABS is amorphous and therefore has no true melting point) is approximately 105 °C (221 °F).
  • HDPE [C2H4]n
    High-density polyethylene (HDPE) or polyethylene high-density (PEHD) is a polyethylene thermoplastic made from petroleum. Known for its large strength to density ratio, HDPE is commonly used in the production of plastic bottles, corrosion-resistant piping, geomembranes, and plastic lumber.
    High-molecular-weight polyethylene
  • LLDPE (–CH2–CH2–)n
    Linear low-density polyethylene is defined by a density range of 0.915–0.925 g/cm3. LLDPE is a substantially linear polymer with significant numbers of short branches, commonly made by copolymerization of ethylene with short-chain alpha-olefins (for example, 1-butene, 1-hexene and 1-octene). LLDPE has higher tensile strength than LDPE, it exhibits higher impact and puncture resistance than LDPE.
  • PP (C3H6)n
    Polypropylene, also known as polypropene, is a thermoplastic polymer used in a wide variety of applications including packaging and labeling, textiles (e.g., ropes, thermal underwear and carpets), stationery, plastic parts and reusable containers of various types, laboratory equipment, loudspeakers, automotive components, and polymer banknotes.
