Categories: Polymer; Thermoplastic; Polyethylene (PE); High Density (HDPE); High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), Sheet/Thermoforming Grade

Material Notes: High Density Hexene Copolymer

Applications: Fuel tanks, seating, garbage cans, sheet, large industrial containers.

Formolene HB4903 is a high performance copolymer that is designed for the most demanding blow molding applications. It is also utilized in many sheeting applications. This resin has exceptional stress crack resistance, excellent surface appearance, good melt strength, and good processability.

Produced using licensor formulation for HHM 4903. Licensor does not warrant or imply that this product meets their specifications for HHM 4903.

Formolene HB4903 meets all the requirements of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as specified in 21 CFR 177.1520 for food packaging at temperatures not exceeding 212°F (100°C).

Nominal properties reported herein were determined on compression molded specimens prepared in accordance with Procedure C of ASTM D1928. Physical properties are typical of product but do not reflect normal testing variance and therefore should not be used for specification purposes.
