Are HDPE and LDPE different plastics, do they need to be labeled differently?

HDPE (High Intensity Polyethylene) and LDPE (Low Intensity Polyethylene) both belong to the polyethylene family, but have different codings. HDPE is indicated with the coding “HDPE 2” while LDPE is associated with the coding “LDPE 4”.
