Our QUITE LITE PANELS are made from tough MDPE (medium density polyethylene) plastic using the rotational molding process. MDPE is used for the manufacture of water tanks, marine floats, traffic barriers, canoes, small boats, and almost any hollow, enclosed or open ended shape. MDPE is different from conventional LDPE (low density polyethylene) and HDPE (high density polyethylene) in that impact, tear, and heat-seal strengths and environmental stress-crack resistance of MDPE are significantly higher. The UV-stabilized resin is ideally suited for applications such as the Teal Panels that require excellent dimensional control and minimal warping.

COLOR: The Teal Panels are molded with a blend of MDPE beads that give it the look of fine carved granite. Not only does it give the panels a rich and classy look, it helps hide scratches, dirt and any fading that may occur over the years.

Components made of MDPE are environmentally safe, are NOT classified as carcinogenic by OSHA, NTP or IARC and may be recycled or reclaimed

Medium density polyethylene.

These hexene copolymers are tailored for rotational molding applications that require:
Wide process windows and excellent flow
Long-term UV stabilization
Excellent impact strength
Excellent ESCR
Applications: recreational and agricultural equipment, toys and carts
Information provided by Phillips

These resins meet the following specifications:

ASTM D4976 - PE 223
FDA 21 CFR 177.1520(c) 3.2a, use conditions B through H per 21 CFR 176.170(c) Table 2. Single use articles contacting food types I, II, IV-B, VI-A, VI-B, VII-B, and VIII. Repeated use articles contacting all food types defined in 21 CFR 176.170(c) Table 1.

While MDPE is a very tough and durable product, it is plastic, and like any plastic, it is subject degredation over time from exposure to the elements. Depending on use and care, The Quite Litel Panels should have a long and useful life span.
