UHMWPE Premium Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene

UHMWPE Premium

UHMWPE Premium (Polyslick® XL) is a crosslinked UHMWPE thermoplastic enhanced with silicone (Polyslick® XLS) for release and slip, or with glass (Polyslick® GXL) for unparalleled wear resistance. These additives create a superior UHMWPE product resulting in increased performance & durability. Our UHMWPE Premium products are crosslinked & UV stabilised.

  • Superior abrasion resistance
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Promotes bulk material flow

Features

Superior UHMWPE

Crosslinked UHMWPE Premium grade materials such as our Polyslick® XL range reduces thermal expansion & contraction. With its low coefficient of friction, coupled with increased wear resistance & dimensional stability, it makes Polyslick® XL the UHMWPE material of choice. Widely used across New Zealand industries for material flow and conveying solutions.

Performance Choices

UHMWPE Premium Polyslick® XL range is available with either silicone oil (XLS grade) or glass sphere (GXL grade) additives. Silicone filled XLS grade offers enhanced slip & release properties. Glass filled GXL grade provides ultra wear resistance where required. Both grades are UV stabilised for extended part life and offer an extremely low coefficient of friction.

Applications

Our Premium Polyslick® XL range is used in a variety of applications such as bunker & hopper liners, screw liners, silos, conveyor wear strips & conveyor chain flights, chain guides, guide rails, dock fenders, belt scrapers, vibrating chute liners, plus many more. The material of choice when standard or reprocessed grades of UHMWPE don't meet the application requirements.
