High Density Polyethylene (HDPE)

HDPE is one of the most popular and commonly used plastics. Valued for its high tensile strength and barrier properties, it is a widely employed material for items with a short shelf life such as milk. Additionally, HDPE’s chemical resistance makes it a good choice for cosmetics, shampoo, detergent and bleach containers.

Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE)

LDPE is a tough, flexible resin to rely upon when heat sealing is required. Often formed for the end-use of film for shrink wrap, garbage bags, frozen food, squeeze bottles, and dry-clean bags, LDPE exhibits ample transparency as well as excellent resistance to acids, bases, and oils.

Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET, PETE)

In high demand not only for its use, but also reuse, PET can be recycled for carpet yarns, fiberfill, and geotextiles. PET has excellent gas and moisture barrier properties and resists impact, shattering, and most solvents. This makes it an invaluable component for injection-molded containers, jam and pickle jars, and microwave- or oven-safe films and trays.

Polypropylene (PP)

Found in both flexible and rigid packaging, polypropylene can provide excellent optical clarity, while maintaining chemical and high-temperature resistance. Alkalis and acids and hot-fill liquids can be handled with confidence due to PP’s inertness. It is regularly used in everything from takeout containers to med bottles to large molded automotive parts.

Polystyrene (PS)

Polystyrene is known as an extremely versatile polymer in both rigid and foam form. PS aids in producing non-toxic and odorless protective food packaging, and it is often combined with rubber to form a high-impact resistant material. Low density and low thermal conductivity make polystyrene a frequent choice for insulation applications.

Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC, Vinyl)

Lightweight, stable, energy efficient, and diverse in application, PVC has some of the most noteworthy weatherability and strength. The PVC pipe, with it’s stable electrical properties, is likely the end-product most associated with this polymer. PVC is, however, also common in grease, oil, and tamper-resistance measures.
