polyethylene is a thermoplastic polymer that has a variable crystalline structure. it is one of the most commonly produced plastics worldwide, with tens of millions of tons produced every year. it is produced by linking ethylene molecules to a larger molecule that has a branched chain structure. it is commonly used in cosmetics and personal care products, food packaging materials, and medical
polyethylene is a common plastic mostly used for packaging. it is a thermoplastic polymer consisting of long hydrocarbon chains, c2h4 nh2, that differ in chain length. the melting point for high-density polyethylene is typically in the range of t = 120 130 c, and for low-density polyethylene about t = 105 115 c.
hdpe high density polyethylene , part of the polyolefin family of materials, is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic material, with a continuous use temperature range of -50 f -46 c to 180 f 82 c . it is categorized as a standard material, and offers high impact strength, high chemical resistance, and very low water absorption.

hdpe high density polyethylene is a polyethylene thermoplastic made from petroleum. some trade names for this material include densetec high density, hitec hdpe, orthoform , playboard hdpe, polycarve , polystone g, sanalite , sanatec hdpe, sanatec lite hdpe, seaboard hdpe, seaboard lite hdpe, seaboard utility, starboard tuff sheet, tecafine hdpe.
hdpe is known for its large strength to density ratio. the density of hdpe can range from 930 to 970 kg/m3. although the density of hdpe is only marginally higher than that of low-density polyethylene, hdpe has little branching, giving it stronger intermolecular forces and tensile strength than ldpe.
chemical name: high-density polyethylene synonyms: hdpe composition: cas % m/m polyethylene > 99 additives - <1 physical appearance: translucent white pellets ,cake and powder. contains slight traces of titanium,chlorine,aluminium.

high density polyethylene hdpe resins are polymers of ethylene or copolymers of ethylene and an alpha-olefin monomer such as 1-hexene, 1-butene or 1-octene. ingestion these materials have very low toxicity if swallowed. however, the granules may represent a choking hazard. for more information, see the relevant safety data sheet.
high-density polyethylene hdpe pipe has been used for decades in non-potable water applications. in particular, hdpe pipes are often preferred for their welded joints 2 . while special equipment is required to form the weld, welding eliminates the need for separate fittings, a common source of leaks and contaminant infiltration.
