The homopolymeric High Density Polyethylene has a very low density combined with high toughness. Due to its good chemical resistance, HDPE is insensitive to most acids, bases, many organic solvents and hot water. The material is a good electrical insulator and, apart from high-frequency welding, can shows good weldability. The continuous operating temperature for HDPE in natural color ranges between -50 °C and approximately +90 °C. Our round rods in natural and black color comply with the food contact regulations according to 10/2011/EC. Advantages of HDPE rods:
  • Excellent machinability
  • Very good abrasion resistance
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Good chemical and heat resistance (200°F range)
  • FDA approved
  • Exhibits outstanding low temperature strength in contrast to Poly Pro
  • For UV resistance, carbon black is added to the HDPE extrusion compound
  • Transport containers
  • Pumps and valve parts
  • Parts in the tank construction
  • Components with medical applications
  • Gaskets
  • Sliding profiles
  • Components for the food industry
  • Components for biogas plants
  • Components in the oil production industry
