OMEGA-TECH ® High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is very light and extremely tough. Commercial polyethylenes consist of mixtures of crystalline and amorphous regions.

OMEGA-TECH ® polyethylene is characterised by toughness, excellent chemical resistance and electrical properties, low coefficient of friction, near zero moisture absorption, light weight, and ease of processing. This means that it is not attacked by strong acids and strong bases. It is also resistant to gentle oxidants and reducing agents
