HDPE is an engineering plastic that is often underestimated and although HDPE is popular, it is sometimes confused with other engineering plastics. HDPE is a shortened name for High Density Polyethylene and available
in two main grades, 300 and 500 grade. The higher the HDPE grade number the higher the density of the plastic
is which improves the performance of the product. Although HDPE is unable to be bonded with currect adhesives, HDPE can be welded with purpose designed and economical welding equipment.
1.Advantages of HDPE Sheet
HDPE Sheet has very low friction properties which are some of the best within the engineering plastics range
and HDPE Sheet helps produce low friction components. HDPE Sheet also has excellent abrasion resistance which helps provide components that are suitable for high abrasion applications. HDPE Sheet will absorb very
low amounts of moisture which help creates components that are stable over a long period of time and also help this product attain Food & Drug Administration Approval which can help in the food industry.
HDPE Sheet is very economical and can provide an engineering plastic with equal or greater performance advantages and save end users a significant amount of money. HDPE Sheet is light and easy to machine to help improve machining times. HDPE Sheet is very tough and almost impossible to break which helps produce components that are tough and can stand up to a lot of punishment in high impact environments.
2.Applications for HDPE Sheet
HDPE Sheet is an engineering plastic well suited to the food industry where low friction wear and buffer strips on food production lines are important. HDPE Sheet is also important within the water industry and HDPE Sheet is found in most areas of this industry because of its very low moisture absorption and good chemical resistance.
HDPE classifications: Ordinary HDPE sheet
