Plastic Properties of High Density
A linear polymer, High Density
Polyethylene (HDPE) is prepared from ethylene by a catalytic process.
The absence of branching results in a more closely packed structure with
a higher density and somewhat higher chemical resistance than
LDPE. HDPE is also somewhat harder and more opaque
and it can withstand rather higher temperatures (120° Celsius for short
periods, 110° Celsius continuously).
High density polyethylene lends itself particularly well to blow
molding, e.g. for bottles, cutting boards, dipping baskets, dippers,
trays and containers.
