Polyethylene is one of the most diverse thermoplastic materials available. The density of polyethylene determines its physical properties:   the higher the density, the stiffer the material. High density yields a higher softening point, with higher tensile and creep resistance. Unfortunately, the reverse effect is true and higher density properties result in a lower impact strength, elongation and flexibility. Common applications include: •  Small tubing to large pipe, including natural gas, sewer pipe and drainage lines •  Coatings for wire and cable •  Large applications such as fuel tanks and containers Low density polyethylene (LDPE) is puncture and tear-resistant and is frequently used for films and bags due to its low crystallinity. It can also be found in coatings to help with heat sealability and moisture barriers.

Our priority is the safety of our employees and customers. Our business is open M-F 8am-4:30pm, and all departments will continue fully staffed. We will continue to provide updates to this as developments in the COVID-19 crisis occur.
