Polyethylene

HDPE, MDPE, LDPE, LLDPE

Our Datasheets

Polyethylene is a versatile thermoplastic resin which may be converted to a variety of fabricated articles used in containers, pipe, film, geomembrane sheet as well as durable applications in the automotive, appliance, and electronics industries.

Film and molded articles may be used in items found in home, retail or industrial settings. Examples include: packaging for laundry, bakery, grocery, frozen foods, dry and powdered foods. Additional applications include truck bed-liners, pond-liners, drums, crates, pails, conduit, drainage pipe, gas and water pipe.
