Resistant to moisture, impact resistance, chemical resistance, that’s why LDPE is included in the ranks of food grade plastic materials. High temperature resistance between -40C to 90C. Save money, because it can be recycled. LDPE is very attractive as a plastic manufacturing material for customers in various sectors.
HDPE and LDPE plastic types are the plastic raw materials that we used to produce quality products, namely iCan – Oil transfer container. Product iCan – Oil transfer container is a product that is safe to use, durable, food grade, and can be recycled.
– Container Oil made from HDPE plastic, available in 2 liters, 5 liters and 10 liters
