HDPE is a moisture-resistant material that can withstand a wide range of temperatures and has a higher tensile strength. Furniture designed to be outside of a house, such as pool lounge chairs, side tables, and sectionals would benefit from the protection that HDPE provides. As a bonus for homeowners, HDPE outdoor furniture are virtually maintenance-free due to its durability.
For homeowners looking to reduce lawn care by switching to artificial grass or turf, those blades can be made of HDPE. This is partially because of its ability to withstand high temperatures and people frequently walking on it.
Rotational-molded polyethylene kayaks are an exceptionally durable option for kayaking enthusiasts. One of the least expensive options on the market, a polyethylene kayak can withstand abuse from rooftop or trailer transport, flying cobblestones, and dragging across rough surfaces.
With rotomolding capabilities, LLDPE can take on complex shapes to make imaginative playgrounds. Similar to garden materials, LLDPE remains safe even after constant exposure to heat. It’s also low maintenance, so it provides a stable structure that’s easy to upkeep. Because it’s resistant to chemicals, polyethylene playgrounds can be easily sanitized without corroding them. With LLDPE equipment, parents can have peace of mind that their kids won’t be exposed to splinters, rusty pieces of metal, or toxins.
For outdoor decorations such as yard signs, plastic plant pots, and garden statues, HDPE is a moisture-resistant material, so any variation designed to be in yards or attached to the outside of a house would benefit from the protection polyethylene provides. It is also resistant to chemicals, so it’s easily cleaned in-between seasons without corroding delicate details.
