The importance of polymers in materials science can not be underestimated. Polymers are widely used within everything from clothing and electronics to packages and paint. Tetra Pak uses the polymer high-density polyethylene, or HDPE, for their packaging solutions. The plastic material HDPE has the advantageous properties of being moldable and sturdy. To build understanding of what structures gives rise to these properties it is important to characterize the material. If the structure is known, it is perhaps possible to manufacture a similar material, in the future, that is not made from oil. This work focuses on the characterization of the material. The structures of HDPE are investigated with small and wide angle scattering.
