Polyethylene is widely used for the plastic fabrication of consumer products such as chopping/cutting boards, stencils, and tanks. PE is common in the marine industry as it’s strong, hard, and lighter than water. It has a wax like appearance and is available in most colours and thickness sizes. UV stabilizers can be used to improve its weather resistance however it will turn the PE black.
Materials such as Seaboard are formulated to meet the specific requirements of marine and other outdoor environments. In addition, special post-production treatment enhances its ability to withstand the effects of salt water, moisture and direct sunlight.
Polyethylene (HDPE) is the high-density version of Polyethylene (PE). It can be moulded, machined, and joined using plastic welding.
