QPE

High-Density Polyethylene, usually shortened to HDPE, is a plastic polymer with flexible properties which make it ideal for a wide range of applications. HDPE has many advantageous properties that make it important in the manufacturing of different products like flexibility, strength, durability, light weight and lack of branching, meaning it is light with a high tensile strength.  These durable properties make it perfect for many applications like

  • Heavy duty containers
  • Plastic pallets
  • Household and kitchenware
  • Crates
  • Pipes
  • Toys
  • Cable insulation
  • Manholes
  • Isolation sheets and other applications
