HDPE 300

High-density polyethylene, (molecular weight approx 300,000 g/ mol.) offers excellent impact resistance, light weight, low moisture absorption, and high tensile strength. HDPE is also non-toxic and non-staining and meets FDA certification for food processing. It is available in both virgin and regenerated grades and a variety of colours. It is extremely cost effective but limited to temperatures no greater than 70 degrees. Celsius.
