HDPE Resin Material Data Sheet

Chemical NameHDPE; High Density Polyethylene
OpacityTranslucent to Opaque
Specific Gravity0.947-0.977
Shrinkage1.0 to 2.0%
Melting Point239°F
Deflection Temperature140°-194°F
Service Temperature183.2°F
ApplicationsHDPE resin is ideal for large parts that require outstanding physical performance. It is commonly used in application such as:

  • Corrosion-Resistant Piping

  • Plastic Lumbar

  • Packaging

  • Plastic Bottles


  • Excellent Processability

  • High Strength to High Density Ratio

  • Good Stiffness, Strength & Toughness

  • Moisture Resistant


  • Can be Susceptible to Environmental Stress Cracking – If internal stresses are not minimized by proper design and use of lowest MFR material at a particular density level.

  • Soluble in Hydrocarbons at Temperatures Greater than 140° F – However, resistance to these materials is greater than that of LDPE Resin.
