Product Overview

HDPE- Commodity Thermoplastic

HDPE, or high-density polyethylene, is a versatile and widely used thermoplastic. Known for its  strength and resistance to chemicals, HDPE is used in a variety of applications. Its ability to withstand extreme conditions without breaking down has made it a favorite choice for products that need to last a long time and perform well under pressure. Additionally, HDPE is weather resistant, withstanding extreme temperatures and UV radiation without degrading.  It is also recyclable, machinable and available in various forms, colors, and thicknesses.

Features and Benefits:

  • Food Safe: Food safe grades available great for food handling surfaces.
  • wear resistance: Can withstand wear and abrasion making it perfect for conveyors and wear pads.
  • Chemical Resistance: Resistant to a wide range of chemicals, including acids and solvents, ensuring longevity and reliability.
  • Low Moisture Absorption: Performs consistently even in wet conditions, keeping its integrity intact.
  • Biocompatibility: Certain grades are suitable for medical use, thanks to their biocompatibility and ability to be sterilized.

Applications:

  • Food & Beverage: Great for cutting boards and food preparation surfaces.
  • Medical: Used in implants and devices due to their biocompatibility and ability to be sterilized.
  • Automotive: Durable and heat-resistant, perfect for various automotive parts.
  • Chemical processing: Capable of resisting harsh chemicals, HDPE is used in pipes and resevoir lining.
  • Industrial Machinery: Wear resistant and long-lasting, suitable for parts that need to withstand tough conditions.
