PEHD

Polyethylen

PEHD is a low density material, good abrasion resistance and chemical resistance.

PEHD is available in many grades.

For example, PEHD may be supplied with foodstuffs in connection with food contact, upon request.

PEHD is used in most places where wear occurs.

PEHD is also very suitable for low temperature applications.

Natural color: White / colorless
