High Density Polyethylene (HDPE)

How hard is your HDPE working for you?

Incredibly versatile. Amazingly dependable. Ready to master new challenges. With options that run the gamut from flexible and rigid packaging to heavy-duty tanks and pipelines, high density polyethylene (HDPE) resins from Dow could be just what you need to tackle your latest challenge.

Flexible packaging

For high output applications requiring toughness and barrier protection, DOW™ HDPE Resins offer excellent performance in mono- or multi-layer structures. That includes great stiffness for efficient filling and shelf appeal, as well as resistance to abrasion, puncture, and other abuse. Serving as a barrier against moisture and atmospheric invasion also makes DOW™ HDPE a desirable addition to many flexible packages.

Rigid packaging

CONTINUUM™ and CONTINUUM™ HEALTH+ Bimodal Polyethylene Resins. DOW™ and DOW™ HEALTH+ HDPE Resins. DOWLEX™ IP HDPE Resins. EVERCAP™ Innovative Closure Resins. UNIVAL™ HDPE Resins. Our HDPEs for rigid packaging are formulated to meet specific needs. They feature various combinations of stiffness and toughness. Impact and environmental stress crack resistance (ESCR). Processability and downgauging opportunities.

These HDPE resins can be used in blow-molded bottles for everything from milk and pharmaceuticals to automotive fluids and agricultural chemicals. Or injected molded containers like microwaveable food trays, dairy cups/tubs, storage bins, and paint buckets. Even injection or compression molded caps, closures, and fitments. The possibilities seem endless.

Durable goods

High levels of impact strength, rigidity, ESCR, low-temperature performance, and more ensure that CONTINUUM™ Bimodal Polyethylene Resins and DOW™ HDPE Resins make the grade for durables. Injection molded products like toys, housewares, storage bins, crates, and pallets depend on it.

For the unique demands of rotational molding applications, we developed RESILITY™ Innovative Rotomolding Resins. They go beyond conventional HDPEs to offer improved UV and weathering protection, bright whites/vibrant colors, and enhanced processability. These and other benefits make RESILITY™ resins the right answer for toys, playground equipment, drums, chemical-resistant tanks, and just about anything else you can rotomold.

Pipe resins

Our lineup of HDPE pipe resins starts with CONTINUUM™ Bimodal Polyethylene Resins and INTREPID™ Bimodal Polyethylene Resins. They offer smart options for improved service life, safety and sustainability by producing extremely durable, leak- and corrosion-resistant, flexible pipe. Natural gas, water distribution, and oil and gas are among the applications that benefit from the remarkable slow crack growth (SCG) and rapid crack propagation (RCP) resistance, pressure ratings, and operating temperature windows offered by these polymers.

In radiant floor heating pipes, BYNEL™ Adhesive Resins enable powerful bonds between layers of DOWLEX™ 2344 PE-RT Resin and ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) polymer or aluminum composite.

Smart choices. Versatile options. Ready to work for you. Let’s talk.
