Recycled PE-HD #2, what is it exactly?

For the production of our plastic pallets, we use recycled PE-HD #2. And in addition, our Q-Pall plastic pallets are also marked. But what does it actually stand for? PE-HD #2 stands for High-Density Polyethylene, also known as HDPE. It is a thermoplastic polymer that belongs to the group of polyethylene, a material known for its flexibility, strength, and chemical resistance. PE-HD #2 is one of the most widely used plastics in the world and is used for many different purposes.

Properties of PE-HD #2

PE-HD #2 is a strong, durable, and lightweight material that is resistant to corrosion, chemicals, and temperature fluctuations. It is also 100% recyclable and can therefore be reused multiple times. PE-HD #2 is not transparent and has a high density, making it very suitable for making containers and bottles. The material is also resistant to UV radiation and can therefore be used for outdoor applications.

Applications of PE-HD #2

PE-HD #2 is used for many different applications. For example, it is used to make water and milk bottles, as well as soap dispensers, detergent bottles, and shampoo bottles. The material is also used to make toys, storage boxes, crates, plastic pallets, and garbage bags. PE-HD #2 is also suitable for making pipelines and containers for chemicals.

Recycling of PE-HD #2

Because PE-HD #2 is an easily recyclable material, it is widely used in the recycling industry. The material can be recycled multiple times without losing quality. This reduces the environmental impact and allows new products to be made from recycled material. It is therefore important to separate PE-HD #2 from other waste so that it can be recycled.


PE-HD #2 is a versatile and durable material that can be used for many different applications. It is strong, lightweight, and resistant to chemicals, temperature fluctuations, and UV radiation. In addition, PE-HD #2 is 100% recyclable, allowing the material to be reused multiple times. By separating PE-HD #2 from other waste, we can contribute to a more sustainable world and promote the recycling of this material.
