- HMPE Plastics Characteristics - High Molecular Polyethylene | BKB Precision
HMPE stands for High Molecular Polyethylene. The molecular density determines the properties of the material. HMPE is moisture-repellent and has good wear and impact-resistance. HMPE is very well-suited for mechanical plastic machining and is mostly used in the transport industry. Special HMPE editions are also exceptionally suitable for the food industry and machine construction. There are various HMPE qualities available, like HMPE500 and HMPE1000. At less than 500, it is also called HDPE or High Density Polyethylene.
