Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene

(UHMVV-PE) exhibits the best properties of all the polyolefin family. Among fs excellent properties are

  • Outstanding abrasion resistance
  • Excellent lubricity
  • High impact strength
  • Zero moisture absorption
  • Outstanding chemical and corrosion resistance
  • USDA, FDA/NSF compliant

The lubricity and abrasion resistance provide many of the applications for UHM. Conveyor guide rails, chain wear guides, bushings, rollers, and noise abatement impact plates are prime candidates for UHMW. Because of its natural white color tis used extensively in the food and pharmaceutical industries. UHMWY can be modified with various fillers, including ceramic and ail. LHW is also available using reprocessed resins.
