High-Density Polyethylene also called as HDPE plastic has been courting most of the buyers favor recently. Not only is it one of the most versatile of plastics—used in everything from hard hats to house wraps—it’s also widely recycled, in both its rigid form (e.g., containers) and flexible form (e.g., bags).
Produced in fits and starts in the 1930s in the United Kingdom, HDPE production really took off in the 1950s in the U.S. and has skyrocketed in popularity, making it today’s most widely used type of plastic. It’s made by stringing together ethylene molecules (thus “poly” “ethylene”), which are derived predominately from natural gas resources in the U.S.

So HDPE is not only versatile, it’s popular. It’s kinda like the Meryl Streep of plastics. It is a very needy product for the Textile Sector these days.

Why so popular?

Here’s why:
  • It’s lightweight yet super-strong. That’s why an HDPE milk jug that weighs 2 ounces can carry a gallon of milk. And why many carmakers use HDPE fuel tanks—lighter weight car parts can help increase fuel efficiency.
  • It’s impact resistant. Drop the toy truck down the stairs and it bounces.
  • It’s long lasting and weather resistant, so that plastic lumber deck in the backyard can entertain generations of families.
  • It resists mold, mildew, rotting, and insects, so it’s great for underground pipes used to deliver water.
  • And it’s easily molded into nearly any shape, providing one of the primary benefits of most plastics: malleability.
HDPE is a thermoplastic material, having unique properties such as excellent mechanical properties, ozone resistance, good electrical properties and chemical resistance. Therefore, we can say that HDPE is going to be in Vast Demand in future.
