H.D.P.E

High Density Poly Ethylene

H.D.P.E. is a very rigid material for use in general plant engineering, tank construction and waste water industries. Where all round chemical resistance and weather ability is required.

TYPICAL PROPERTIES

  • Good impact resistance
  • High mechanical strength
  • Resistant to many solvents
  • Very good electrical insulator
  • Excellent abrasion resistance
  • Very high damping properties
  • Continuous use temp. of -45 to 100 Deg. Cent.
  • Minimum water absorption (0.01%)

 

CHEMICAL RESISTANCE
HDPE is resistant to Acids, Salts & salt solutions, Alcohols, oils, fats, waxes & many solvents.
All PE material is affected by strong oxidizing agents such as nitric acid, chromic acid or halogens.
Aromatics and Halogenated hydrocarbons cause swelling.

U.V RESISTANCE
Sheet & Rod products of HDPE are supplied in two colours

White which is non UV
Black which is UV

APPLICATIONS
Machine guards, water tanks, chemical tanks, cutting boards, pipe fittings & component parts.
