Responses, source for white LDPE

David Hendricks, CPO, FAAOP

Here is my question and the responses I received. Thanks, all, for your help.

07-21-00, listserv responses, supplier of white LDPE


I am looking for white LDPE (low-density polyethylene). I don’t mean what we

all use everyday, which is called natural. I mean LDPE that is pigmented

white. American Plastics of Dallas, who I buy from, tells me they never heard

of it. Anyone know where I can get it? Or if it is available at all? I need

to buy it in sheet form, 1/8″. I know it is available for injection molding.



1. Cascade Orthopaedic Supply in Chico CA carry this palstic in the color

white, ph#1-800-888-0865.

Good Luck!

(This turned out not to be true.)

2. Try AliMed at 1-800-225-2610, or 297 High Street Dedham, MA 02026.

(They don’t have it either.)

3. Yes, we have orthopedic grade, white LPDE, 1/8″. We need to know the sheet

size required and amount needed. Thanks.

state only) or www.cadillacplastic.com, 3495 Winton Place Building A,

Rochester, NY, 14623. Just tell Him you want the same plastic FLO-TECH uses

for our APOPPS FLO-TECH-TOR sockets but that you need it in 1/8″ thickness.

Good Luck.
