Polyethylene is an industrial plastic. Its surface will have some imperfections and scratches.
HDPE Sheets Custom Fabricated
HDPE cut-to-size sheets can be customized in width and length, but we can also add holes, radius corners, and rounded or routed edges for an additional cost. Cut-to-size requests may take one to two business days to process, or you can visit one of our store locations to get custom HDPE in five minutes or less, from start to finish. Our highly trained experts can promptly provide a quote for any cut-to-size request. HDPE sheets can also be used to produce loose-leaf binders, indexes, sheet dividers, boxes, signs, and point-of-purchase (POP) displays. Our natural sheets have a low coefficient of friction and can be easily cut, welded, or thermoformed for easy fabrication. If you have any questions about our selection or customization, please call 888-827-7330 or email email@example.com to learn more.
High-density polyethylene (HDPE) is a versatile thermoplastic that is made from petroleum. This multipurpose material offers excellent chemical resistance to suit a wide variety of applications at a competitive price. Our selection of HDPE sheets includes a wide range of sizes, colors, thicknesses, and customization options to choose from. Polyethylene sheets are resistant to impact, moisture, and chemicals, making it ideal for machined parts, industrial cutting boards, wear strips, tank linings, livestock containment, material handling systems, and other applications. Businesses, schools, and other organizations choose HDPE, because it does not splinter, rot, or retain harmful bacteria. Just select the ideal thickness, width, length, and quantity to get started.

What is HDPE?
HDPE stands for high density polyethylene sheets. HDPE is a thermoplastic made from petroleum. At TAP Plastics we provide HDPE with commercial applications in mind and our best plastic cutting sheets are engineered for outstanding flatness and consistency. HDPE cutting board sheets are NSF listed and FDA approved making them perfect for commercial cutting board needs and safe for direct food applications. We produce custom sized high-density polyethylene plastic (HDPE) cutting boards in addition to the standard 24x24 plastic cutting board. HDPE comes in a wide variety of forms: black commercial cutting boards are commonly found in restaurant back room prep areas and white plastic cutting boards and cutting sheets are commonly found in front of house prep areas or buffet lines. You can bet that most industrial cutting surfaces in the USA are fabricated using HDPE cutting sheets made to the specifications of the area and the needs of the business. HDPE can be cut to any size and rounded at the edges to fit any commercial or industrial cutting board application desirable. When rounded, the edges are extremely smooth and splinter-free. HDPE is suited for interior applications.
What’s the difference between textured vs. smooth high-density polyethylene plastic (hdpe) sheets?
HDPE is not altered by chemicals, moisture, or impact which makes it ideal for such a wide range of applications. Smooth HDPE plastic can be used in educational applications such as binders, displays, and machined parts, or industrial applications such as livestock containment or tank linings for chemical tanks. Textured HDPE plastic is most commonly referred to as plastic cutting board and can be fashioned into any custom plastic cutting sheet - size and width determined by the consumer and the application. TAP Plastics can create custom plastic cutting boards of a variety of sizes and shapes, large and small. The texture is important because this way the HDPE is not slippery and becomes an ideal cutting surface.The boards are textured on both sides so they can be used on both sides and the texture prevents the users knife from going dull after repeated use. The non-porous surface of our commercial plastic cutting boards is perfect for food application where the smooth HDPE is technically food safe it would not be great for cutting or preparing food the way that our textured HDPE is.
