difference between HDPE and LDPE Plastic
This entry was posted on November 5, 2018.
Although both materials are polyethylene, they do have different properties. LDPE is softer, more flexible and melts at a lower temperature than HDPE. LDPE is used in sandwich bags and other types of packaging. HDPE is harder, has a higher chemical resistance and can withstand higher temperatures. Grafix stocks HDPE , not LDPE, although LDPE can be purchased on a custom order basis. Production minimums will apply. Talk with your sales rep to discuss your options.
