Product Overview

LDPE- Commodity Thermoplastic

LDPE is more flexible than HDPE, which makes it a good choice for prosthetic devices, most of which are either drape formed or vacuum formed. Impact resistance makes it a natural for impact pads, while its easy machinability makes it a good choice for fabricated parts where chemical and corrosion resistance is demanded.

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.


  • 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, LDPE is used in pipes and resevoir lining.
  • Industrial Machinery: Wear resistant and long-lasting, suitable for parts that need to withstand tough conditions.


At Northeast Plastics, we offer a wide range of LDPE grades, from standard LDPE to marine grade and pipe grade variants, each designed to meet specific industrial needs.
