HDPE SHEET (High Density Polyethylene)
More Polyethylene is used today than any other Thermoplastic. Many different grades of material are available but HDPE is a more rigid and harder grade than Low density materials. With improved tensile strength and considerably better compressive strength this material is used in diverse areas from Bridge building to the food container industry.
