Abstract

The article presents the results of complex thermal and structural studies of two technical types of polyethylene (PE-80 and PE-100) and their welded joint. It was established by mathematical calculations as well as experimental investigations that during conventional heated tool butt welding recrystallization of polymers occurs resulting in the formation of crystalline areas with improved mechanical and thermal properties, due to the increased degree of their ordering.
