I was scratching my head with this acronym until I decided to google it, then I understood: you're using the French
Ouch. I didn't realize because much material acronyms are english (eg. PEEK). But here as HD (High Density IIRC) is a flavor, indeed french is different from english. Do you think I should edit former posts ?
That makes me think to the UTC acronym where french & english vainely fought a long time to decide between respectively TUC and UCT, to finally choose something that as no meaning in both languages so everybody will be equal...
in English (which we're used to here because our tiny French-speaking province is surrounded by English-speaking neighbours, suppliers etc.) it's called HDPE.
Our case is slightly different from yours. Our reasonably big (compared to neighbours) French-speaking state is surrounded by Dutch, French, German, Italian & Spannish speaking people. English speakers are kept safely away by the Channel. What they don't know is that we take occasion of digging the Channel Tunnel to install a bung so we can sink their entire island if needed.
