This study deals with high-density polyethylene (HDPE) which was subjected the drop-weight test. HDPE is a semicrystalline thermoplastic polymer which is commonly used in many applications and mainly in the automotive industry because of its properties. The injection moulded HDPE samples were subjected the penetration test at different potential energies and the results were subsequently evaluated and discussed. The samples were tested in the range of potential energies from 30 to 230 J. The first sample penetration occurred at the energy 50 J. It was found out that the potential energy 30 J is too small for penetration of this material, which shows the impact resistance of HDPE.
