HDPE Plastic Overview

Many people are searching endlessly for quality materials for containers, industrial equipment, and packaging. Unfortunately, it seems they are looking in the wrong direction. If you are looking for high-quality plastic, look no further than HDPE plastic.

HDPE is used for accessories and trimming for cars and boats, producing the strongest, long-lasting plastic containers and bags for food to waste materials. Its flexibility has made this product the most popular, “must-have” choice on the market.

HDPE plastic comes with many benefits that will meet all your requirements for packaging and durable containers. HDPE is leading the pack for components used in cars and boats and an array of other needs.

Finding the perfect plastic for your needs comes with understanding the quality of individual plastics and the benefits they might offer. This article should help increase your knowledge about plastic, its pros and cons, and why you should bring this material into your life.

Density – This means HDPE plastic does not absorb the material inside the container which makes it a perfect choice for liquid containers and various marine applications.

About HDPE Plastic

HDPE stands for High-Density Polyethylene which is a thermoplastic polymer known for its strength, flexibility, and longevity. Made from petroleum, it's the most versatile plastic on the market to date. HDPE comes in flat sheets but can be molded into various shapes, used in injection molding, and for 3D printing.

What HDPE Plastic Is Used For

HDPE plastic is safe for food so it's a popular choice for packaging food and beverages including bottled water. In a flat format, it's used for cutting boards and surfaces for preparing food. This plastic is also used for large containers to store liquids as well as oil and waste.

HDPE can withstand impact and friction, making it a great choice for industrial operations as well as for railings or trims in manufacturing facilities. Also, because it's tolerant to chemicals, it's a popular choice for factories and processing centers dealing with chemicals and possibly corrosive materials because this plastic will not break down when exposed to them.

HDPE is the chosen product for marinas because of its low water absorption and resistance to impacts. This is why many trims and accessories on boats and decks use HDPE plastic because it holds up well against outdoor conditions and contact with water. These are just a few industries that use HDPE and with good reason. That said, outside of these industries, there are so many applications using HDPE for its strength, moisture resistance, and tolerance to chemicals.

The Benefits Of Using HDPE Plastic

Although we have listed several good reasons why HDPE plastic has become so popular, there are many other reasons and incredible benefits. The leading qualities that make HDPE plastic stand out from the crowd include strength, density, water and chemical resistance, and flexibility. Here are the top benefits and why:

Strength – HDPE has an enormous strength to density ratio which simply means it can resist breaking under tension and is excellent for holding heavy materials and large amounts of liquid with no signs of damage or wear.

Density – This means HDPE plastic does not absorb the material inside the container which makes it a perfect choice for liquid containers and various marine applications.

HDPE is resistant to corrosion, mildew, mold, and rotting making it incredibly durable in many environments as well as long-lasting, resistant to weather, and virtually non-penetrable to many basic solvents, greases, waxes, and acids.

HDPE is approved for safe use in many circumstances. It can be used in containers or on surfaces that prepare food and beverages without any absorption or leaching of chemicals into the container.

Industry-grade HDPE has been approved by the FDA, NSF, and USDA as a food-safe material in containers.

Outside of food, HDPE is proven to easily mold and form into many containers and shapes. Due to its high melting point, it is often molded into shapes used by many industries. In the sheet form, it's extremely processable meaning it can be worked using several applications. like deep drawing, cutting, riveting, welding, routing, milling, and hot and cold forming.

Outside of various businesses and industries, word has gotten out and many households are now flocking to HDPE plastic for just about anything plastic in their homes. Garbage bags, cutting boards, milk containers, and water bottles to name a few. Boat owners want to know if the trimming and accessories on their boats are made from HDPE Plastic. Due to its long-lasting durability, there is no end in sight when it comes to this miraculous plastic.
