Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene is lightweight compared to other thermoplastics & will float in water. Virtually indestructible & will outwear steel 6 times over in the right application. Due to its ultra-high molecular weight it has no notch sensitively, has exceptional impact resistance & will not easily crack or chip.
Other grades are available on request offering specific properties such as anti-microbial which includes biocidal additives, electrically dissipative grades with anti-static properties, electrically conductive grades for electrical engineering, & UV resistant grades for outdoor or UV applications.
UHMWPE Virgin is often CNC machined into parts that are widely used in the food processing & bottling industries. Other common applications include chain wear strips & guides, star wheels & feed screws, conveyor curves, self-lubricating bearings & bushes, pump & valve components, rollers, paddles & idler sprockets, plus many more.
