Connecting HDPE Pieces

There are two ways to connect multiple pieces of HDPE together. One method is to overlap the HDPE and use our double sided seam tape to connect the two pieces. The other method is to butt the ends together and use our 17 mil single sided seam tape to create a solid connection.


Overlap Method
(for underground installations)

The overlap method is best used when connecting two pieces of HDPE in a buried application. Due to the overlap, a ridge is exposed which is not ideal when installed in exposed vertical or flat installations in high traffic areas as there is a possibility of an object catching on the ridge and pulling the two pieces apart.

In a below ground installation, the large overlap area provides a more water resistant connection as well as enhanced protection against tree and plant root intrusion.

End to End Method
(for exposed installations)

When installing HDPE on a wall, floor or anywhere that is exposed, the end to end method provides a secure connection and does not leave any ridges exposed to potential catching by a person or object.

About High-Density Polyethylene

HDPE is the abbreviation for high-density polyethylene. This is a thermoplastic polymer with an excellent high strength-to-density ratio. The density ranges from 930 to 970 kg/m1. HDPE is denser than low-density polyethylene or LDPE and is much stronger making it the perfect material for specific strengths required for some items. In many cases, HDPE is constructed for specific applications. It can be cut and molded very much like wood. HDPE also offers other benefits such as resistant to chemicals or finishes for outdoor uses. HDPE's other advantages include dependability, reliability, and last a very long time for residential, commercial, industrial, and marine-grade uses.

HDPE Popular Uses

HDPE is the perfect material for so many different environments including residential, commercial, industrial, and marinas.

Residential To Commercial

HDPE has shown to be a dependable and reliable material while withstanding all weather conditions. Outdoor furniture, bathroom partitions, outdoor furnishings, playground equipment, outdoor kitchens, various amenities, and outdoor structures. As an example, HDPE is a great material for marine decking with the same great look found in natural wood.. HDPE marine decking offers a natural wood appearance but much less maintenance or waterproofing while remaining strong in all weather conditions. Commercial marinas and docks will benefit from HDPE sheet's amazing benefits.

HDPE plastic stands out from the crowd because it works perfectly in many projects due to its remarkable material. HDPE is the chosen product for commercial and urban amenities, parks and recreational sites as well as golf courses. HDPE can be easily customized for a number of commercial projects making it the chosen option.

HDPE Offers More Than Traditional Wood

We have learned so much about HDPE sheets but many people want to know why it's considered superior to traditional materials such as wood. Anyone who uses wood outside knows it must be treated to prevent infiltration of water, stained and finished to protect it from the elements but HDPE does not.

HDPE will stay in great condition when used outdoors and last a very long time inlike wood. This is why HDEP sheets have become the chosen product for outdoor furniture, marina decking, boat accessories, and the list goes on and on.

HDPE is molded, shaped, and cut for a wide range of applications just like wood. This incredible plastic will hold up to many7 shapes and sizes without ever breaking or becoming damaged. This is not common in most other materials. HDPE will resist corrosion, mildew, mold, and even insect infestation by protecting you and your family from health or safety issues. HDPE is indifferent to acids, solvents, cleaning products, and detergents. Due to its low-maintenance, HDPE is easy to clean just using soap and water.

Some Concerns

There are some concerns you need to be aware of when using HDPE sheets. One major concern is the melting point of HDPE. When used in hot elements or industrial applications, HDPE can melt or become warped under stress from very high temperatures. Also, HDPE is not biodegradable or can be turned into compost. All said and done, it's still the best product for creating a barrier for protecting one and all from mold, insects, and other contaminants HDPE is resistant to.
