PEHD (polyethylene high-density) is an economical thermoplastic material that combines a multitude of advantages. Both strong and lightweight, PEHD offers good impact resistance. As an excellent electrical insulator, it has a very low coefficient of friction and absorbs minimal moisture.

Perfectly suited for machining, it can withstand temperatures ranging from -50 °C to +105 °C and has good chemical resistance. Some PEHD variants are available in food-grade quality.
