Your strongest everyday plastic. High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) sheets are very strong against impact, abrasion resistant, and exhibit low coefficient of friction. This material is also moisture, stain, and odor resistant, and FDA approved for use in the food processing industry (especially for cutting boards). material durability makes it the perfect match for applications such as water tanks, parachute coatings, bottle / bottle caps and various other industries. Boron HDPE offers radiation protection in the application of nuclear facilities.
The stiffness and tensile strength of HDPE resins are much higher than those of low and medium density materials. impact strength is slightly lower, as expected in rigid materials. The value remains high when compared to those of various other thermoplastic materials, especially at low temperatures.
The ground mechanical HDPE resin is used for rotationally large moldings, complex shaped products such as fuel tanks, garbage containers, wagon carts, pallets, agricultural tanks, road and water barriers and waste tanks for RVs. In addition, HDPE sheets are often extruded with finished pebbles and used as cutting boards in various industrial markets such as meat packing, cutting, and more.
