Product Description

High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) popularity is primarily due to its low initial material cost and excellent UV & chemical resistance. This allows thicker sections of HDPE to be used in exposed applications where the cost of other materials may be prohibitive. 

HDPE is a versatile material that is used widely across many applications. One of the primary uses of HDPE is as a liner at the base of landfills, where its chemical resistance is put to use. HDPE applications also include pond linings and water containment projects.

HDPE is a field assembled lining material that cannot be practically fabricated in the shop. Therefore, all HDPE projects, regardless of size, must be installed by trained installers.
