HDPE at Piedmont Plastics

HDPE (High-density polyethylene) is a thermoplastic derived from petroleum. It is a versatile product that is extremely strong, impact resistant, and exhibits a low coefficient of friction. HDPE offers great strength, affordability, and environmental friendliness, all of which make it the preferred plastic material for many manufacturers.

Key Features and Benefits of HDPE

Designed to be one of the most versatile plastics in the world, high density polyethylene offers a wide variety of benefits. Our HDPE is engineered to be long-lasting, low maintenance, and safe. The material is FDA approved for use in the food processing industry, and it provides the added benefit of being moisture, stain, and odor resistant.

In addition to the many benefits listed above, HDPE is corrosion resistant, meaning it does not splinter, rot, or retain harmful bacteria. This key feature, along with its weather resistance, makes HDPE perfect for use in areas that encounter water, chemicals, solvents, and other fluids.

HDPE is also known to possess a large strength to density ratio (ranging from 0.93 to 0.97 g), yet it is easily meltable and moldable. It can be easily cut, machined, fabricated, and welded and/or mechanically fastened to meet the desired specification of countless applications.

Lastly, like many engineered plastics, HDPE is easily recyclable and can help significantly reduce plastic waste and production.

What is HDPE Used For?

Thanks to the versatility of high-density polyethylene, many manufactures often replace their old heavier materials with HDPE. This product is used across countless industries including food processing, automotive, marine, recreation, and more!

HDPE’s properties make it a great choice for indoor and outdoor applications, including:
