U.H.M.W.P.E - Ultra High Molecular Weight Poly Ethylene
U.H.M.W.P.E Ultra High Molecular Weight Poly Ethylene
Trade Names: Polystone UHMWPE is a very rigid material for use in general plant engineering where the unique properties, excellent impact strength, wear and abrasion resistance are required.
- Excellent impact resistance
- High mechanical strength
- Resistant to many solvents
- Very good electrical insulator
- Excellent abrasion resistance
- Very high damping properties
- Continuous use temp. of -269 to 80 Deg. Cent.
- Minimum water absorption (0.01%)
- Extremely low co-efficient of friction
UHMWPE is resistant to Acids, Salts & salt solutions, Alcohols, oils, fats, waxes & many solvents.
All PE material is affected by strong oxidizing agents such as nitric acid, chromic acid or halogens.
Aromatics and Halogenated hydrocarbons cause swelling.
Sheet & Rod products of UHMWPE are supplied in two colours
White which is non UV
Black which has a slightly higher UV protection than white.
Flow promoting liners to resist sliding abrasion and to assist release, Conveyor components subject to high wear and requiring low friction. Componentry in direct contact with food stuffs. Parts subject to high impact stresses.
White & BlackUHMWPE can be supplied in Sheet & Rod
