Slime From Hdpe?

I WAS WONDERING IF ANYONE HAS HAD THIS PROBLEM. I BUILT A CAGE OUT OF HIGH DENSITY POLYETHELENE (HDPE) AND WHEN I GOT IT ALL SET UP, I SPRAYED THE INSIDE OF IT WITH WATER, AND IT TURNED INTO SLIME! IT HAPPENS ALMOST INSTANTLY, AND ITS HARD TO CLEAN OUT. ITS GOT THE LOOKS AND FEEL OF COLD GRAVY. THATS ABOUT THE BEST I CAN EXPLAIN IT. HERES SOME PICS OF THE CAGE AND THE GEL SUBSTANCE THAT IT MADE. SHOULD I JUST CALL IT A LOSS OR IS THERE SOMETHING I CAN DO?

THANKS IN ADVANCE,

JOSH CARLSON

Josh,
There is obviously some kind of chemical reaction taking place here.
I wonder if there is some type of coating on the material to protect it.

Do you have any scrap pieces left over from the construction?
If so, you might try some experimentation with them. Do some heavy cleaning on them and try to determine if this possible coating can be removed.

Regardless, until you have some concrete answers, I would not make use of the enclosure for live animals.
