HDLPE tanks are more correctly called HDPE tanks.
HDLPE is a slang term in the plastics industry used to
distiguish tanks made from the 'linear' family of Polyethylenes
from the 'crosslink' family of Polyethylenes. Plastic
resin producers do not label their products as HDLPE so it
should not appear in specifications. On our listings, you
will find our "HDLPE Tanks" under their correct listing of HDPE.
Our crosslink polyethylene tanks are listed as XLPE. The
confusion comes from the fact that XLPE has a material density
that falls in the high density range.
Now that our industry has you confused, we'll try to
simplify things. HDPE is the most common plastic resin
used to make tanks. It is tough, chemically resistant and
inexpensive. It is also NOT the only plastic used or
necessarily the best plastic to use. No single plastic is
best for every chemical or liquid. Check our Compatibility Database to find the
plastics that will work best with the liquid you need to store.
Listed below are all of our HDPE tanks (HDLPE tanks).
We have Vertical Tanks, Double Wall Vertical Tanks, Open Top
Tanks, Horitzontal Tanks, Closed Top Cone Bottom Tanks, Open Top
Cone Bottom Tanks and several other types. We also offer
many of these tanks made from XLPE (HDXLPE), Polypropylene and
