HDPE is a high impact strength and high density polyethylene. HDPE has excellent tensile strength, energy absorption, abrasion resistance and resistance to stress cracks.

HDPE has little branching, giving it stronger intermolecular forces and tensile strength than lower-density polyethylene. The difference in strength exceeds the difference in density, giving HDPE a higher specific strength. It is also harder and more opaque and can withstand somewhat higher temperatures (120 °C/ 248 °F for short periods, 110 °C /230 °F continuously). High-density polyethylene, unlike polypropylene, cannot withstand normally-required autoclaving conditions.


Features:

  • High impact strength
  • Excellent tensile strength
  • Abrasions resistance
  • Resistance to stress cracks

Applications:

  • Cams, washers, shims
  • Machined parts
  • Rack liners / protectors
  • Tank, chute, bin linings
  • Cutting boards
