Polyethylene (LDPE, HDPE, UHMW)

HDPE and LDPE– both materials are in the Polyolefin family of plastics, along with Polypropylene (PolyPro) and UHMW (Ultra High Molecular Weight). Manufactured by a variety of manufacturers under the names: Polyboard, Polymar, Hostalen, Polystone, Hitec, Sanatec, Sanalite, Ultra Ethylux, Polycarve, and Densetec.

For great abrasion resistance, very low density and FDA/NSF compliance, Polyethylene is an excellent choice.

Basics

Why you should use HDPE/LDPE:

  • Light Weight
  • Stain, Odor and Moisture Resistant
  • FDA & NSF Approval for Food Contact
  • Vacuum and Thermo-Formable Material
  • Very Durable and Abrasion Resistant

This materials is…exhibit high impact strength, abrasion resistance and low coefficient of friction. Very light weight (density of .91 – .96) and extremely durable. FDA and NSF approved for food contact. Low forming temperature for ease of vacuum or thermo-forming.

  • Self Lubricating and Low Co-Efficient of Friction
  • Very High Chemical Resistance
  • Low Specific Gravity (Floats in Water)
  • Can be Heat Welded or RF Welded
  • High Impact Strength and Energy Absorption
  • Excellent Wear Resistance and FDA/NSF Approved
  • Exceptional Low Temperature – Brittle at -110 degrees F
Applications

Frequently used in:

  • Cutting Board and Food Preparation Surfaces
  • FDA, USDA, NSF Compliant Machined Parts
  • Heat Formed and Vacuum Formed Parts
  • Dasher Board For Ice Rinks – Impact Parts
  • Welded Tanks, Hoppers, Silo Linings and Slide Chutes
  • Chemical and Structural Tanks and Covers
  • Food Processing Equipment, Valve and Pump Components
