UHMW Polyethylene

UHMW Polyethylene

Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene has the highest molecular weight of any polyethylenes, their unique combination of properties can be successfully used in a range of applications where it is unmatched by any other engineering plastic.

Key features and benefits:
  • High chemical resistance
  • Little or no moisture absorption
  • Anti-adhesive surface
  • Resistant to stress corrosion
  • Physiologically safe
  • Very high resistance to wear and abrasion
  • Low co-efficient of friction
  • Very high impact strength
 
UHMWPE applications:
  • Guides
  • Seals
  • Slide rings
  • Wear rings
  • Other machined components that require high chemical and abrasion resistance
 
Availability:
  • Rods
  • Sheets
  • Machined components
