With a low coefficient of friction, long term durability, abrasion resistance as well as high impact strength, it’s no wonder HDPE is the product of choice for so many applications within marine biology, packaging, industrial, plumbing, food and beverage, consumer industries and more.
HDPE is most commonly known to be used in marine wear applications. Resistance to acid, odor, moisture, mildew and stains make it a one of a kind plastic solution for marine usage. HDPE is used in marine applications such as boating seats and floors (when covered from UV lights), cabinetry, counter tops and walkways.
Its light weight, durability, flexibility and toughness make HDPE a great solution for many storage applications including bottles, bottle caps, food storage containers, bins, laundry detergent bottles, and water cans. Fuel tanks for vehicles, plastic bags, storage sheds, and lawn and garden products are also produced from HDPE plastic. Due to its high chemical resistance, HDPE is used to make geomembranes for hydraulic applications (such as canals and bank reinforcements) and chemical containment.
HDPE has the durability and water-, abrasion-, and chemical resistance to make it an ideal plastic solution for many piping systems including chemical resistant piping systems, corrosion protection for steel pipelines, geothermal heat transfer piping systems, water pipes for domestic water supply, and agricultural processes.
Industrial industries all over the nation use HDPE plastic to produce tough and durable products such as mechanical parts, tank linings and wear strips. These products rely on the impact resistance and super tensile strength of HDPE products, which make them more durable and reliable.
HDPE plastic is used to make a myriad of consumer products such as swimming pool installations, backpacking frames, banners, folding chairs and tables as well as hard hats. Products such as hula hoops, plastic lumber and fireworks are produced using HDPE, for its flexibility and toughness. FDA compliant grades of HDPE also make several products for kitchen use including cutting boards, cheese molds and molds for frozen food.
One of HDPE’s most commonly used applications is its use in boarding material such as arena board (puck board) in hockey rinks and moisture resistant body boards for use in morgues.
