Ultra High Molecular Weight Poly Ethylene

(Ultra high molecular weight poly ethylene)

Molecular weight of about 4,500,000 g/mol. Of all ultra high molecular weight poly ethylene grades, exhibits the best balanced property profile. It combines an excellent wear and abrasion resistance with an outstanding impact strength, even at temperatures below – 200°C. Its main fields of application are: general mechanical construction; bottling, canning, and packaging machinery; chemical and electroplating industry; cryogenic equipment; textile industry and storage systems for bulk materials.

Main Characteristics :

  • Good wear and abrasion resistance (particularly PE-UHMW)
  • High impact strength, even at low temperatures (particularly PE - UHMW)
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Excellent release properties
  • Very low water absorption
  • Moderate mechanical strength, stiffness and creep resistance
  • Very good electrical insulating and dielectric properties
  • Excellent machine ability
  • Physiologically inert (most grades are suitable for food contact)
  • Good resistance against high energy radiation (gamma- and X-rays)
  • Not self-extinguishing
