7 Reasons To Use HDPE Packaging For Plastic Jerrycan
HDPE stands for high-density polyethylene and is part of a group of plastics in the polyethylene family, which include LDPE (low density), MDPE (medium-density), and every other type of density in-between! We know that plastic is often seen as the 'bad guy' of packaging but, when it is used and recycled correctly, HDPE plastic can be incredible! Here at Kadujaya, we have a wide range of Plastic Jerrycan (Jerigen Plastik) and bottles, but what makes HDPE superior to other materials? Here are just 7 reasons why HDPE should be on your shortlist of Plastic Jerrycan (Jerigen Plastik).
1. It’s lightweight, but super strong!
The reason why HDPE plastic is one of the most popular plastics to use is because it is so strong compared to other plastics of a similar weight. For example, HDPE milk bottles can hold 2 gallons of milk when they themselves only weigh 2 ounces!
2. It has so many applications.
Due to its strength and malleability, HDPE can be used in many different ways and for many different products, including:
3. It’s impact resistant.
HDPE is perfect for moulding children’s toys with, as it is able to withstand being dropped and bumped around without sustaining any major damage!
4. It’s weather-proof.
As well as being impact resistant, HDPE is also weather resistant as it is impermeable to rain water, doesn’t rust or corrode and also is resistant to biological growth that could eventually crack or split other materials. This is why it has been used as an effective material for outdoor pipework for over 50 years.
5. It’s recyclable!
Other than functionality, there are not many features that are more important to consumers today than recyclability. Luckily, HDPE is one of the easiest plastic polymers to recycle!Once recycled, HDPE plastic products can be turned into rope, bins, pipes and toys. It is more cost effective to make a new product from recycled HDPE than it is to produce new plastic.
6. It has great temperature resistance.
Some HDPE plastics can withstand temperatures up to 120 degrees Celsius for short periods! This means that the plastic will not lose shape or structure when exposed to high temperatures or sunlight for any length of time.
7. It’s Cheap!
HDPE not only has all of these great properties, but it is low cost as well, as it is so commonly available and used in many different industries. Here at Kadujaya, we have plenty of HDPE bottles and Plastic Jerrycan (Jerigen Plastik) that are sold at wholesale prices per pallet, so that you can get the very best price per unit.
