Normally referred to as Polyethylene, HMWPE, is the most commonly used plastic material in the world. It is also the most commonly used plastic in heavy gauge thermoforming. Non-toxic, polyethylene is also highly resistant to corrosive chemicals, offers a very low coefficient of friction, has very low moisture absorption, is self-lubricating, impact resistant and is highly abrasion resistant. Available in both virgin and recycled material grades, polyethylene can be extruded in a variety of colors and finishes.
