HDPE, HIPS and Wooden,which one is the best material?

HDPE is one of the most popular materials used in manufacturing today. It is used to make many different types of products in its pure form, and is often recycled to make a composite material for manufacturing as well. So what is HDPE and why is it so advantageous to our future?

HDPE stands for High Density Polyethylene. It is used in its pure form to make many different types of products, and is often recycled to make composite materials for manufacturing. So what is HDPE and why is it so beneficial to our future?
High Density Polyethylene is a polyethylene thermoplastic made from petroleum. HDPE is known for its high strength-to-density ratio (the maximum stress the material can withstand). It is also the most environmentally stable of all plastics and is essentially maintenance free.

When HDPE is recycled, it is available in both profile and sheet forms for many popular outdoor products. That's why our HDPE Adirondack chairs are so popular.

 

The production of polystyrene began in 1930 and was one of the first thermoplastic polymers to be industrially produced. The development of rubber-modified polystyrene (i.e., high-impact polystyrene, HIPS) began in 1950 to meet the requirements of tough materials. By adding rubber to the polystyrene base material, various grades of high-impact polystyrene with different properties can be produced.
The outstanding properties of HIPS are easy processing, excellent dimensional stability, high impact strength and high rigidity.
The HIPS frog chair is all-weather, durable and exceptionally low-maintenance. It will not rot, crack or break, and does not require painting or staining. And because it resists weather, food and drink stains, and environmental stresses, it is easy to keep looking new!

Wooden Adirondack chairs are usually sturdy in construction and have a high weight-bearing capacity for outdoor use. In addition to being durable, wooden chairs are weather-resistant and less likely to crack, chip and peel. Combining ergonomic design with slatted wood style, it is breathable and provides strong support. In addition, the classic style of the wooden chair makes it a perfect match for your décor and adds a harmonious and natural touch to your room.


On top of that, these wooden Adirondack chairs are made of superbly crafted selected wood, and the wide backrest with wide wooden slats and ergonomic armrests will make your experience even more wonderful

HDPE recycled plastic is essentially maintenance free, with exceptional resistance to salt spray, oil, moisture, fading, insects, graffiti, splinting, warping and other hazards of environmental exposure common to wood or wood fiber composite products.

Healthy Building recommends HDPE resin based products as the most environmentally friendly building material.

HDPE is commonly used to make toys, food storage containers, marine products, drain pipe, food preparation products and outdoor signage.

When HDPE is recycled it is available in both profile lumber and sheet form, allowing for many popular outdoor products such as waste & recycling receptacles, decking, bike racks, benches, picnic tables, fencing  and furniture.

HDPE products are used in many markets settings including hotels and resorts, colleges & universities, food service, retail, golf courses, municipal parks and public venues.

Use of HDPE materials contributes towards satisfying LEED credits.
