UHMW, also known as UHMW-PE (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene). It is categorized as an engineering material, and offers a unique combination of wear and corrosion resistance, a low-friction surface, and high impact strength. It will outlast metal, nylons and other engineering plastics under constant wear applications.

UHMW Applications:

    • Conveyor guard rails
    • Wear strips
    • Shoes
    • Conveyor wear strips
    • Packaging machining components
    • Food processing machining components
    • Mechanical
    • Bearings
