High-density polyethylene is best utilized when you need HDPE bags that are puncture resistance, tensile strength, temperature resistance and moisture barriers; these factors are necessities in your business. HDPE is translucent and milky in appearance due to its high strength to density ratio. The material is durable in a wide temperature range. The softening point is 210-220°F while the embrittlement temperature is -180°F. The higher density of this material limits the transmission of moisture into or out of the bag. These HDPE bags are manufactured in an ISO certified cleanroom. They are certified clean to IEST-STD 1246D.
