You love the appeal of wood. You love the way it looks on the floor and on your furniture. However, there is one small problem that prevents you from turning your entire house into a wooden paradise: the price of wood is continuing to spike, and there aren’t that many wallets (including yours) that can afford such a luxurious material.
Fortunately, there is a solution for homeowners who want to obtain the luxurious look of wood yet keep it within the tight parameters of their budgets. Plastic lumber is emerging as a great alternative for a lot of households.
One of the reasons why plastic lumber is a good choice to make can be attributed to the fact that it is extremely durable. It won’t be affected by insect and water damage. This lumber alternative also does not rot, so replacement will never be an issue and pockets will be happy with a solid purchase.

Secondly, plastic lumber is environmentally friendly. Plastic lumber is produced from recycled materials, which makes it a green product. Thirdly, plastic lumber can come in different colors and can take the form of a natural matte finish with a small amount of waste paper. Ultimately, plastic lumber is the perfect alternative for those who want luxury on a tight budget.

High-density polyethylene (HDPE) is a popular material employed in engineering. Being petroleum, this type of polyethylene thermoplastic is malleable enough for melting, shaping, and segmentation. As its name suggests, HDPE is denser than other polymer plastics due to its linear crystallization structure. The lack of branching and result of carbon and hydrogen molecule bonding are the plastic's immense tensile strength, lightness, and high resistance to solvents and acids.

Using HDPE in Engineering and Other Industries

HDPE's durability and non-responsiveness to chemicals make it a practical plastic for a wide range of industries. In packaging, for instance, this plastic is suitable material for plastic grocery bags, detergent, and milk bottles. It also makes for good, tight storage of fuels and chemicals.

In manufacturing, engineers are becoming more partial to the use of HDPE lumber. Plastic lumber is used in the construction of fence posts, boardwalks, decks, and furniture among many others. Being plastic, this recyclable's inability to rot, be an attractive feast for insects, and become a suitable surface for painting is making it the go-to alternative for wood. Environmentalists can also be assured that it is 100% recycled as well as 100% sustainable. Who knew the material our detergent bottles are made of is the durable bulk that might eventually replace and outperform wood and other plastic products?

HDPE plastic is an ideal material for speed bumps because of its sturdiness. The material resists moisture, making HDPE impervious to rot. At the same time, the material repels insects. Unlike some other plastics, HDPE resists chemical changes brought about by UV radiation from the sun. This extra layer of protection prevents the plastic from melting or becoming brittle, allowing it to last for longer periods of time.

HDPE plastic can be used in a variety of applications, from speed bumps to decking. If you are interested in purchasing the material, do not hesitate to contact a trusted HDPE supplier like Premier Building Supply, Co.
