High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is a common material choice for commercial polymer applications. HDPE is part of the Polyethylene (PE) family of thermoplastic polymers with variable crystalline structure. The physical properties of HDPE can vary depending on the molding process that is used to manufacture a specific sample; to some degree, a determining factor is the international standardized testing methods employed to identify these properties for a specific process.
Can withstand temperatures from -148 to 176 degrees Fahrenheit.
Resistant to most chemical solvents.
Poor weathering resistance
Sensitive to stress cracking
Difficult to bond
Prototyping, Tooling, Fixturing, and Casings.
Quick-turn prototyping and short production runs for all industries.
