HDPE plasticPolymershapes is the foremost source for polypropylene, plastics and thermoplastics such as High Density Polyethylene (HDPE). HDPE plastic is arguably one of the most versatile plastics that we carry. Order HDPE plastic from us. We offer standard sizes for quick delivery. Custom sizes can be ordered and cut to your specifications. Our custom cutting is carried out by next level precise fabricators at our locations.

HDPE plastic is highly malleable and can be formed into almost any shape. High Density Polyethylene, or HDPE plastic is used in a variety of things and it can be recycled (HDPE’s resin identification code is the number 2, which you’ll find on countless recyclables). It is incredibly lightweight, yet very strong. Comprised of chains of ethylene molecules, HDPE plastic is generally sourced from natural gas resources.

It is impact, weather, and mold/mildew resistant. It can be crafted for HDPE pipe that is used in underground settings, flexible form / plastic bags, plastic milk jugs, plastic containers, plastics for hats and shoes, and even signage.

Polymershapes carries several colors, textures and grades of HDPE plastic and the following standard sizes of HDPE plastic sheet, rod, and tube can ordered. We carry brands such as Proteus® from Quadrant and other HDPE plastics from Polymer Industries and Rochling.
