High-density polyethylene (HDPE) is a highly used plastic across industrial and consumer applications. For example, HDPE is a common material used in the fabrication of cutting boards, conveyor liners and food handling equipment, and more.
High-density polyethylene possesses a valuable set of properties, such as:
Emco Industrial Plastics is a distributor/fabricator of high-density polyethylene components for the following industries and applications:
High-density polyethylene is widely used in food processing and packaging, as HDPE products are designed for sanitation and consumer safety. HDPE is resistant to stains and chemical degradation, making it ideal for processing and packaging of acidic or aggressive food products. Temperature-resistant HDPE is widely used in baking applications, while colored HDPE aids in quality control by helping identify plastic contamination in food products.
HDPE is also useful in conveying equipment for food processing applications. High-density polyethylene offers good resistance to impact, wear, and abrasion, making it suitable for food conveying applications, such as rollers on transfer belts.
Commercial kitchens and restaurants often choose HDPE for food grade cutting boards. HDPE cutting boards are offered in multiple colors to help prevent cross-contamination, and feature a softer material that doesn’t dull knives and a textured, non-porous surface for minimal moisture absorption. High-density polyethylene cutting board surfaces are also resistant to acid, non-toxic, and will not stain, chip, peel, warp, or crack. Emco’s HDPE cutting boards are USDA-certified, easy to clean, and dishwasher safe.
Numerous industrial applications choose HDPE due to its easy machinability, good rigidity, high tensile strength, low moisture absorption, and impact resistance. Emco offers turnkey machining and fabrication services to deliver HDPE components that meet the needs of most industrial purposes.
We manufacture HDPE products for these industrial applications and more:
Our borated high-density polyethylene is designed specifically for medical shielding applications. With 5% boron by weight, this HDPE product has the ability to shield neutrons while still delivering lower costs, and easier installation, maintenance, and use when compared to lead-lined products.
Borated HDPE products are used in:
Our Playboard™ HDPE products offer durability, UV stability, easy cleaning, and weather resistance in outdoor recreational applications. Available in a multitude of colors, HDPE sheets are used for ice rinks, skate parks, modular playgrounds, and many other outdoor uses. In these applications, high-density polyethylene replaces wood paneling in high traffic areas both inside and outdoors.
High-density polyethylene is lightweight, malleable, and strong, making it well-suited for numerous applications. Emco Industrial Plastics manufactures HDPE products that will meet or exceed the needs of your operation.
