ULTRA-HIGH MOLECULAR WEIGHT POLYETHYLENE
UHMWPE (Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene) has exceptionally high abrasion and impact resistance properties. It will outwear all other materials, including metals, nylons, urethanes and fluoroplastics. In corrosion resistance, it has the same qualities of other polyethylene plastics.
UHMWPE resists wear, friction and corrosion and thus it cuts maintenance costs, energy consumption and extends equipment life.
Applications for UHMWPE materials include guide rails, wear plates, rollers, conveyor augers, bin and hopper lines, chutes.
