HDPE or PP but which material is best?

GoPlasticBoxes.com are continually advising clients of what Materials Handling products would be most relevant for their application and this extends outside the large stocks of Plastic pallets, KLT’s, Tote Boxes, Nesting and Stacking Containers and Euro Boxes to the most appropriate materials. Our Materials Handling containers are predominantly manufactured from either High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) or Polypropylene (PP) and the choice of material is dependent on the required application.
High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is better at lower temperatures and has a range from -40 degrees to 40 degrees making it ideal for food and hygienic applications and is used to manufacture a number of our Plastic Pallets and Food Crates.
Polypropylene (PP) is a very strong, robust and durable material with a temperature range from -20 degrees to 60 degrees and is used to manufacture our Tote Boxes, Euro Containers and the majority of our Stack and Nest containers.
