HDPE Plastic Packaging

High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) plastic packaging is one of the most dependable options when it comes to plastics.

Due to its lightweight and strong makeup, custom HDPE plastic packaging is widely used across industrial thermoforming applications. On top of its exceptional strength, HDPE is also resistant to external factors such as stains, odors, and moisture. HDPE tends to be more on the difficult side in terms of forming because of the shrinkage that occurs during the heating process due to its chemical components. Once the shrinkage is properly accounted for in the design phase, HDPE is one of the more resilient plastics.

HDPE isn’t exclusively suited for industrial applications, it is used in a variety of industries such as transport/shipping and the cannabis industry. Since it is available in FDA Compliant Grade, it widely used in the food industry as well. Whether it be an HDPE shipping tray or a food tray that will be stored in the freezer, HDPE is a material utilized by many food manufacturers. Custom colors as well as both thin and thick options available.

  • We are a small manufacturing business in Denver Colorado that has several custom packaging needs for the product we sell. FormTight was able to look at our current packaging and reengineer our packaging to not only reduce our packaging cost but improve our product's appearance on our customer's shelf which has resulted in more sales. We have also found that because of their state of the art tooling fabrication capability, our tooling costs are less, turnaround time is quicker and we have more options on what we can do with the design of our packaging. Want to thank everyone at FormTight as they are our go to vendor.

  • We needed a custom product in a very short period of time and of course we needed it over the Holidays and under a very tight timeframe! Form Tight came through when no one else could. Customer service was excellent! Doug Ramsey came down in person to make sure we were all on the same page, met with a secondary company to make sure all the components would work together and then followed through all the way to the delivery. The final delivered product was on time and the quality is what was promised, 100%. I would recommend Form Tight to anyone who needed their services.

  • After another thermoforming supplier proved unable to produce a useable part, FormTight went the extra mile to expedite material and production to meet an aggressive schedule. Our first meeting was very productive since FormTight included their thermoforming process experts and a representative from their preferred tooling foundry. Their selection of a different manufacturing technique (male instead of a female tool) was key to the success of the project.
