High Density Poly Ethylene

A strong and durable thermoplastic material popular for its high strength-to-density ratio and chemical resistance.

H.D.P.E. – High-Density Poly Ethylene

High-Density Polyethylene (H.D.P.E.) is a versatile thermoplastic material that offers several benefits for custom projects. It is a strong and durable material that has excellent resistance to impact and abrasion, making it ideal for applications that require toughness and durability like in general plant engineering, tank construction and wastewater industries.

Additionally, H.D.P.E. is a moisture-resistant material that can withstand exposure to water and other environmental factors without swelling or warping, making it suitable for outdoor applications. It is also a chemical-resistant material that can withstand exposure to many common chemicals, making it ideal for applications in harsh chemical environments.
