High-density polyethylene (or HDPE) plastic has been courting my favor recently. Not only is it one of the most versatile of plastics – used in everything from hard hats to house wraps – it’s also widely recycled, in both its rigid form (e.g., containers) and flexible form (e.g., bags).
1. What is an HDPE film?
High-density polyethylene (HDPE) is hard, sturdy plastic with a high crystalline structure. It is commonly used in plastics for milk cartons, laundry detergents, trash cans, and cutting boards.
2. Uses of HDPE
It’s light but super strong. That’s why a 60g HDPE bottle can hold about 3 liters of milk. And why so many automakers use HDPE fuel tanks — lighter-weight car parts can help increase fuel efficiency.
It is impact-resistant.
It has a long service life and is weather resistant.
It resists mildew, rot, and insects, so it’s great for underground pipes used to carry water.
And it’s easily molded into nearly any shape, a trait that all plastics have in their malleability. And this is very important when applied to the plastic packaging industry, especially laminated film packaging.
Like many other plastics, HDPE often replaces heavier materials, partly because our society and many companies are pursuing sustainability goals, such as reducing the amount of material used in packaging and products. “Light and strong” can translate to “less impact on the environment”. For example, a recent study of packaging found that plastic could provide the food industry with less waste and fewer emissions.
Because of such a wide range of applications, HDPE films are suitable for many industries such as:
- Personal care products
- Household products.
3. Recycling for HDPE
The HDPE plastic identification code is the printed symbol number 2, surrounded by a chasing arrow. This code was designed decades ago to help recycle plastic in the first place.
HDPE is recycled very well and in the world it is almost rare to find HDPE in landfills, they are all accepted at recycling plants. And recycled products are applied to many different products.

Some typical uses include:
- Recycled plastic storage bins
- Recycled plastic wood;
- Outdoor furniture made of recycled plastic;
- Playground equipment made of recycled plastic;
- Auto parts made of recycled plastic;
- Plastic recycling bins, compost bins
Therefore, HDPE film is a very popular material thanks to its high strength, impact resistance, flexibility, and especially its recyclable feature.
