Additional Information

High-density polyethylene (HDPE) is a widely used thermoplastic known for its strength, chemical resistance, and versatility. It exhibits excellent rigidity and good structural integrity, making it suitable for pipes, containers, and construction materials. HDPE’s high chemical resistance allows it to withstand exposure to various chemicals and solvents, making it a preferred choice for food and beverage containers.

This material also boasts excellent moisture resistance, contributing to its use in water pipes and outdoor applications. Additionally, HDPE is naturally food-grade safe, making it ideal for food packaging and containers. Its recyclability further enhances its environmental sustainability. However, HDPE has limited flexibility compared to some other thermoplastics and can be susceptible to UV degradation when exposed to sunlight for extended periods.
