Storage and Handling
Polyethylene resin should be stored in a manner to prevent a direct exposure to sunlight and/or
heat. The storage area should also be dry and preferably don’t exceed 50°C. SABIC would not
give warranty to bad storage conditions which may lead to quality deterioration such as color
change, bad smell and inadequate product performance.
