High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Plastic Lab Bottles offer good strength and chemical resistance. HDPE bottles offer stronger tensile strength than LDPE containers, are harder and more opaque, and can withstand somewhat higher temperatures: 120°C (248°F) for short periods, 110°C (230°F) for longer periods. High-density polyethylene cannot withstand autoclaving. Can't find what you're looking for? Call us for immediate assistance.
HDPE Chemical resistance
Excellent resistance (no attack) to dilute and concentrated acids, alcohols, bases and esters
Good resistance (minor attack) to aldehydes, ketones and vegetable oils
Limited resistance (moderate attack suitable for short-term use only) to aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, mineral oils, and oxidizing agents
Poor resistance, and not recommended for use with halogenated hydrocarbons
