High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Sheets

A member of the polyolefin family, polyethylene or HDPE sheets are recognized as being environmentally-friendly. Polyethylene, including HDPE sheets, requires few natural resources to produce, generates minimal waste products, and is widely recycled. Polyolefins have good electrical properties, and exhibit extreme resistance and durability in response to chemical solvents and varying temperatures, making them ideal for an abundance of industrial applications.

Grafix has many stock sizes and finishes of HDPE sheets, and can also produce HDPE sheets to match specific colors, thicknesses and finishes.
