• WHAT IS HDPE?

        • High-density polyethylene (HDPE) is a thermoplastic polymer made from multiple units of ethylene.

          It is obtained through the process of addition. HDPE molecules present very little ramification and have high molecular density, resulting in a material that is extremely tough and resistant. It is also very resistant to high temperatures. This is the main difference between high-density and low-density polyethylene.

          Properties and characteristics

          HDPE is a colourless and almost opaque material. It is easy to paint, print onto and attach adhesives to HDPE, which makes it highly customisable.

          It is very resistant to impacts and high temperatures, has a high tensile strength, and is also resistant to acids and solvents.

          HDPE is easy to process using different methods such as injection and extrusion. HDPE is a recyclable material: its Resin Identification Code is 2.

          Applications and uses

          The properties of HDPE make it ideal for the manufacture of containers for cleaning products, caps, tubing, and plastic chairs and tables.

        • Tapones

          • Crates (injection grade) regrind
          • HDPE bottle flakes and regranulate
          • HDPE pipe regrind
          • 100% HDPE crates from collection or destruction of bottling-plant stocks. Separated by colour, regrind, and free of contaminants. Our HDPE regrinds are injected directly into new crates at 100% utilization.
          • HDPE bottles, shredded and washed, available in mixed colours. Regranulate in different colors. Common applications are manufacture of pipes and new bottles.
          • Regrind of HDPE pipes, available in black or blue.
