High Density Poly Ethylene (HDPE) is a thermoplastic polymer made from petroleum. As one of the most versatile plastic materials around, HDPE plastic is used in a wide variety of applications, including plastic bottles, milk jugs, shampoo bottles, bleach bottles, cutting boards, and piping. Known for its outstanding tensile strength and large strength-to-density ratio, HDPE plastic has a high-impact resistance and melting point.

Besides its use for food applications, it can be found in unusual places, including:

  • Wood plastic composites
  • Plastic surgery, specifically skeletal and facial reconstruction
  • Snowboards
  • Shoe Lasts
  • 3-D printing filament
  • Food and beverage containers
