Due to these qualities, HDPE cutting boards are viewed as the safest cutting board material.

What are common applications of HDPE cutting boards?
There is an extensive range of applications for High Density Polyethylene HDPE cutting boards including domestic and commercial food preparation, food packing, storage, marine applications – such as boating seats, floors, and cabinetry; salad bars in restaurants or grocery stores, portable plastic cutting board stations at events, and handling equipment. Unlike other types of materials, HDPE cutting boards are extremely durable, have good impact resistance, maintain minimal moisture absorption, and offer excellent resistance to chemicals and corrosion.

Can you resurface HDPE cutting boards?
At Acme Plastics we do not recommend resurfacing any HDPE cutting board or other plastic cutting boards. Over time and constant use, you will notice that scratch marks will build up, resist the urge to resurface it. Repurpose yes, resurface no. Here, a few reasons for not resurfacing HDPE cutting boards. Texture, after resurfacing you will notice a loss of texture. HDPE cutting boards are crafted with semi-rough texture on one side to prevent food from shifting while preparing it – slicing, cutting, etc. By resurfacing the board, the texture is removed making its surface slippery—hence making slicing or chopping hazardous for the person using knives on the board. Also, sanding down or resurfacing a HDPE cutting board can create contamination by creating minor cuts in its surface for food to become trapped in, which can harbor harmful bacteria on the board. Plus, the plastic residue from resurfacing can clog pipes. The value price point of quality HDPE cutting board makes repurposing and recycling the safest choice for worn materials and a smart buy when ordering a new custom HDPE cutting board from Acme Plastics for optimal food safety.
