High Density Polyethylene (HDPE)

Custom HDPE Fittings

Characteristics of HDPE

HDPE is a durable, flexible plastic. The insoluble material is weather-resistant, shock-resistant, and abrasion-resistant. HDPE is also highly affordable, created from petroleum under high heat. Rather than crack, HDPE is more likely to tear under pressure, reducing overall damage. 100% BPA-free, HDPE is the favored material in the food industry. It is often selected for industrial work as it is 250% thicker than PVC. The material is also recyclable, producing useful if less sturdy plastic. The trickiest factor when working with HDPE is bonding, which requires intense heat and precision.

HDPE Uses

We create custom HDPE fittings for a variety of uses.

  • Potable water pipes
  • Food storage
  • Break-resistant mining equipment
  • Above-ground pipes
  • Sewer systems
  • Factory parts
  • Car parts
