Blowplast manufactures high quality HDPE plastic containers and for a range of industries that includes but not limited to petrochemicals, edible oils, cosmetics, paints, pharmaceuticals, juice and dairy.
Because of its high adaptability, rigidity, and corrosion resistance, HDPE is the ideal combination of strength and cost-effectiveness and is the most widely used plastic.
Like many other plastic types, HDPE is being used to replace heavier materials because contemporary society is working towards sustainability goals of reducing the amount of material used in packaging.
HDPE stands for high-density polyethylene.
HDPE is a catalytically produced hydrocarbon polymer derived from ethylene/petroleum. It’s a particular variety of thermoplastic known for having high tensile strength. A thermoplastic is a polymer that becomes plastic when heated and hardens when cooled. HDPE is well-known and loved for its strength, light weight, and ease of shaping.
Yes. HDPE plastics are safe and are not known to leach chemicals into foods or beverages, making it a low-risk option.
Yes, HDPE plastics are BPA-free and are therefore suitable for products that have a direct contact on humans.
Yes. In fact, they are one of the simplest plastic polymers to recycle and are accepted at recycling facilities. Simply look for the small number 2 surrounded by three “recycling” arrows in a triangle shape.
HDPE requires heat, which is relatively inexpensive to produce and manufacture.
Yes, HDPE is suitable for waterproofing and storing liquids in HDPE containers. The HDPE vessel can be airtight, which helps to keep bacteria, dirt, dust, and other contaminants from contaminating the product inside.
HDPE plastic is created by applying extreme heat to petroleum under controlled conditions. This process is called cracking which leads to the production of ethane gas. These gas molecules then join together to form polymers, which are then used to make polyethylene.
Following this, polyethylene is molded to produce a stronger polymer material called high-density polyethylene.
