High-density polyethylene is a long-chain polymer synthesized under controlled conditions of heat and pressure, with the aid of catalysts. It has characteristic thermal properties and a density between 0.941 and 0.965 g/cm3.

Application

This USP reference standard is intended for use in specified quality tests and assays.
Also used according to United States Pharmacopeia (USP) general chapters:
  • 〈661〉 Plastic Packaging systems and their Materials of Construction for multiple internal reflectance and thermal analysis.
  • 〈88〉 Biological Reactivity Tests, In Vivo to determine the biological response of animals to elastomerics, plastics, and other polymeric material with direct or indirect patient contact, or by the injection of specific extracts prepared from the material under test
  • 〈87〉 Biological Reactivity Tests, In Vivo to determine the biological reactivity of mammalian cell cultures following contact with the elastomeric plastics and other polymeric materials with direct or indirect patient contact or of specific extracts prepared from the materials under test
