The homopolymeric Polyethylene High Density has a very low density combined with high toughness. Due to its good chemical resistance, PE-HD is insensitive to most acids, bases, many organic solvents and hot water. The material is a good electrical insulator and, apart from high-frequency welding, can shows good weldability. The continuous operating temperature for PE-HD in natural colour ranges between -50 °C and approximately +90 °C.
