Primex extrudes a number of High Density (HDPE), Low Density (LDPE) and High Molecular Weight (HMWPE) polyethylene resins.

When an order is received, the appropriate material is chosen to yield the necessary physical properties such as melt index and density. The result is a sheet that has the proper “sag” during the thermoforming operation, assuring even material distribution and wall thickness. The correct resin selection is essential to provide sheet that will perform properly.
