Rigidity and tensile strength of the HDPE resins are considerably higher than those properties in the low and medium-density materials. Impact strength is slightly lower, as is to be expected in a stiffer material. But values are high, especially at low temperatures, compared to those of many other
HDPE resins are available with broad, intermediate and narrow molecular weight distribution, which provides a selection to the processor to meet specific performance requirements. As with the other polyethylene grades, very high molecular weight copolymers of HDPE resins are available with improved resistance to stress cracking. A specific category of HDPE, known as high-molecularweight
HDPE (HMW-HDPE), offers outstanding toughness and durability. HMW-PE is also referred to as pipe grade PE and features a higher molecular weight than standard HDPE materials. HMW-PE is used in a wide variety of applications including flanges, stub ends and manhole covers for industrial piping systems. These characteristics result from a unique combination of high average molecular weight (250,000 to 500,000), a broad molecular weight distribution, and generally, a distribution that is bimodally shaped.

HIGH DENSITY SANALITE POLYETHYLENE SHEET
Sanalite® is a new exciting cutting surface made of high density polyethylene that's approved by the F.D.A. and U.S.D.A., and certified by the N.S.F. This lightweight, thermoplastic cutting board has eliminated cracking, peeling, warping and acid corrosion of the cutting surface.
The Best Way To Stay Sharp. Sanalite® has a unique self-healing quality that helps it retain its shape. Fibrous wood doesn't. It also keeps your knife sharp and productive. Here's how. The surface molecules give way to the knife blade, bouncing back, not fighting the cutting action like wood grain does. This gives you more time between sharpening.
Sanalite® Thermoplastic Cuts Odors. Because of its molecular makeup, Sanalite® won't absorb moisture. So it can't trap odors or harmful bacteria into the work surface. When it comes to cleanup, cleaning agents simply rinse away.
