Polyethylene (HDPE – LDPE)

New Technology Plastics stocks a wide selection of both HDPE and LDPE materials in both sheet and rod. Polyethylene (PE) polymers are semi crystalline thermoplastics with a high degree of toughness and very good chemical resistance. When compared to other plastics, polyethylene plastic tends to exhibit lower mechanical strength and temperature resistance

Individual polyethylene materials vary in molecular weight, which has a direct effect on the relative physical properties of each type. The most used PE plastic types are HDPE and LDPE. Please see our material section for UHMW-PE materials.
