HDPE-big-image Lightweight yet strong

High-density polyethylene (HDPE) is a popular thermoplastic used for various applications. Some of its advantages include:

  • Cost-effectiveness
  • Broad temperature resistance
  • UV-resistance
  • Dishwasher-safe
  • Resistant to most chemical solvents
  • Stiffness
  • Resistant to mould, mildew, rot and insects

This makes HDPE ideal for use in plastic bottles, toys, playground equipment, chemical containers and pipe systems, to name just a few applications. While being lightweight, HDPE is still strong, which is why a light bottle can be used to hold 2 litres of milk. Its impact-resistant nature is evidenced by its usage in making children’s toys, which can be thrown around and dropped down the stairs while sustaining minimal damage. Finally, its resistance to mould, mildew, rot and insects makes it ideal for use in underground pipes.

Few materials surpass HDPE in versatility, which explains its popularity in various industries such as construction, chemical, food processing, pipe, marine and the waste water chemical processing industry. Additionally, HDPE can be recycled, making it one of the more environmentally-friendly plastics available.
