HDPE (HIGH DENSITY POLYETHYLENE)
HDPE (High-density polyethylene) is a thermoplastic derived from petroleum. It is a versatile product with low moisture absorption, excellent impact resistance, high tensile strength, and good chemical and corrosion resistance. HDPE’s properties make it a preferred choice for a wide variety of indoor and outdoor applications such as bottles, furniture, kick plates, fuel tanks, lockers, playground equipment, packaging, food processing equipment, and boat, RV, and emergency vehicle interiors.
HDPE does not splinter, rot, or retain harmful bacteria. It is also recyclable and extremely resistant to the harmful effects of cleaning agents. In addition, HDPE is a relatively inexpensive option for many applications compared to metal or glass.
HDPE can be easily cut, machined, and fabricated. It can also be welded and/or mechanically fastened. HDPE is available from Piedmont Plastics in natural, black, or white and in thicknesses ranging from 1/16” to 4”. We offer CNC cutting services in over 40 locations across North America to help you maximize your yield and cut your overall costs.
