PLASTIC TYPES – OCEAN-BOUND-PLASTIC
HDPE has very durable properties so it does not absorb liquid which makes it a good barrier material for liquid containers like e.g. shampoo bottles. Furthermore is HDPE an extremely resistant material to many chemicals as acids, alcohols, aldehydes, bases and oils.
With the world market to produce over 30 million tons of HDPE each year, the volume is enormous. HDPE is also one of the easiest plastic polymers to recycle.
