Plastics | PVC Extrusions: HDPE (High Density Polyethylene)
Product: HDPE (High Density Polyethylene)
HDPE is defined by a density greater or equal to 0.941 gm/cm³.HDPE has a low degree of branching. The mostly linear molecules pack together well, so intermolecular forces are stronger than in highly branched polymers. HDPE has high tensile strength. It is used in products for boat industries and packaging.
