HDPE - High Density Polyethylene
HDPE – High Density Polyethylene
HDPE has good chemical resistance to almost all acids, many organic solvents and hot water. It also has good insulation properties and is very easy to weld. HDPE has an operating temperature from -50° C to +90 °C .
Some common applications of HDPE components are chemical tank linings, sliding parts in various industries, guide conveyor rollers, & food and beverage components.
- Low density
- High toughness (also at lower temperatures)
- High elongation at break
- High chemical resistance
- Food safe
We stock HDPE in various stock shapes such as solid plain sheets and solid rods. We can also customize components in HDPE if provided with technical drawings and / or samples.

UHMW PE – POLYETHYLENE
PE is a material widely used in the construction of chemical equipment and tanks. On the basis of the material’s molecular weight, we at HI-TECH POLYMERS differentiate between two types of PE; namely PE 500 (HDPE) and PE 1000 (UHMW-PE).
