Polyethylene is a common thermoplastic resin typically used for injection molding applications.

Polymers with densities ranging from .941 to .965 and over are considered high density. High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) has a high-impact strength with a higher operating temperature than LDPE. HDPE has excellent tensile strength, energy consumption, abrasion resistance, and resistance to stress cracks, and good chemical resistance and electrical properties. Injection-molded HDPE is resistant to warpage and distortion.

FEATURES

  • Excellent tensile strength
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Chemical resistance
  • Excellent machinability
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Self-lubricating
  • Stress-cracking resistance
  • Water/salt resistance
  • Lightweight

LIMITATIONS

  • Poor heat resistance, high thermal expansion
  • Relatively low physicals, can fail under high mechanical stress
  • Soft surface

APPLICATIONS

  • Milk, juice, and water bottles
  • Yogurt containers
  • Margarine tubs
  • Laundry products
