Chemical Resistance of Recycled Plastic Lumber

Plastic Lumber Resistance to Chemicals

Resco Plastics produces 100% high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic lumber for a variety of applications. HDPE is a versatile material with excellent strength, durability, and chemical resistance, making it a top choice for many industries.

One of the key advantages of Resco Plastics’ 100% HDPE plastic lumber is its imperviousness to a wide range of chemicals. This chemical resistance makes it ideal for use in harsh environments, including construction, industrial, and food processing applications.

Here is a list of some of the chemicals that HDPE is impervious to:

  • Acetic acid
  • Acetone
  • Ammonia
  • Benzene
  • Butane
  • Calcium hypochlorite
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Chlorine gas
  • Diesel fuel
  • Ethanol
  • Hydrochloric acid
  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Methanol
  • Nitric acid
  • Sodium hydroxide
  • Sulfuric acid
  • Toluene
  • Urine
  • Xylene

Overall, Resco Plastics’ 100% HDPE plastic lumber is an excellent choice for applications that require superior chemical resistance. Unlike wood/plastic composites that may have reduced chemical resistance due to the addition of wood fibers, Resco’s 100% HDPE plastic lumber is impervious to a wide range of chemicals, providing exceptional performance and longevity.

Even though there is a much larger list of chemicals MAXiTUF Plastic Lumber is resistant against, below is a list of Common Chemicals HDPE Plastic Lumber is resistant to. If you have a particular application in mind that involves a chemical not on the list, please feel free to contact us.
