Polyethylene Overview

Polyethylene is one of the most cost effective products most machinists recommend, not only for the cost, but for the properties it excels in.

Elder Engineering have a high amount of stock, whether it be in full sheets or rods or cut to your specific size.

HDPE 300 Overview

High density polyethylene 300 grade (HDPE) is used in a variety of applications and industries where excellent impact resistance, high tensile strength, low moisture absorption, chemical and corrosion resistant properties are required. It is available in extruded up to 30mm thick and pressed sheet up to 100mm thick..

MDPE / HDPE 500 Overview

This grade exhibits a good combination of stiffness, toughness, mechanical damping ability with wear and abrasion resistance and can easily be welded. MDPE 500 (also known as HDPE 500) is a versatile polyethylene grade used mainly in the food industry (meat and fish processing) but it is also put to use in all kinds of mechanical, chemical and electrical applications.

UHMWPE Overview

UHMWPE 1000 Also referred to as (PE 1000) sets the standard for engineered polymers with a unique combination of wear and corrosion resistance, low friction surface and impact strength.
UHMWPE 1000 is resistant to chemical attack and moisture absorption, and retains key physical properties down to minus 150⁰C after which it starts to become brittle.
An excellent general-purpose material, UHMWPE 1000 (natural) is a cost-effective solution for food handling problems, and meets FDA, USDA and 3-A Dairy guidelines for food processing can also can also be offered in custom colours compounded with FDA/USDA approved pigments which meet FDA and USDA guidelines for food processing and handling. Whether your business is grain, pharmaceuticals, pizza dough or frozen poultry, UHMWPE 1000 will reliably move your materials and products.
