HDPE

High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) | With excellent impact strength, our HDPE is easily formed and machined using conventional equipment. HDPE is not as flexible as low density polyethylene and not as rigid as polypropylene. However, it may be bent to a considerable degree without stress whitening.

Flight HDPE is available in:

  • UV additives and carbon black provide excellent UV stability
  • Heat resistance is limited to approx. 80°C
  • Is flammable with a slow burning rate
  • Excellent moulding qualities
  • High impact strength
  • Has good elasticity
  • Will float on water
  • Can be welded
