Like Tecafine PP, stamped washers and parts made from HDPE and LDPE have excellent resistance to acids and bases, and while their upper service temperature is not as good as PP, the low temperature toughness is notebly better. Washers and spacers from these materials work well in outdoor service applications. Markets like winter sporting goods, building and construction, and refridgerator components value the low temperature impacts. LDPE will have better stress crack resistance then HDPE.
- Broad chemical compatibility
- Easy to machine
- Good impact strength
- Low moisture absorption
