HIGH-DENSITY POLYETHYLENE (HDPE)
High-Density Polyethylene is stronger than standard polyethylene and known for its large strength to density ratio. HDPE is commonly used in the production of plastic bottles, corrosion-resistant piping, geomembranes, and plastic lumber. HDPE is commonly recycled, and has the number “2” as its recycling symbol.
Recycled HDPE creates no harmful emissions during its production or during its use by the consumer. Also, HDPE leaks no toxic chemicals into the soil or water.
HDPE Basic material properties:
- High strength to density ratio
- Resistant to many different solvents and chemicals
- Resistant to insects and rot
- Resistant to abrasion, corrosion and cracks
- Resistant to moisture
- Easily recyclable and can be used again and again
- Extremely durable and flexible
- Lightweight, due to the density of the material
- Maintenance free, keeping its original beauty for years
- Impact, and wear resistant
- Ultra violet (UV) and ozone resistant
