HDPE Unfilled

Overview

What is the Material: HDPE Unfilled is a semi-crystalline material.

Key Material Features: This material is beneficial in applications requiring chemical resistance, impact strength, low moisture absorption, and the ability to retain properties at low temperatures.

Other Considerations: This material is rigid and has a lower impact strength as a result of that.
