A member of the polyolefin family, polyethylene (HDPE) is recognized as being extremely environmentally-friendly. HDPE 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 makes many stock sizes and finishes of HDPE, and can also produce our HDPE sheeting to match specific colors, thicknesses and finishes.
