TIVAR, POLYSTONE M, LENNITE, HOSTALEN GUR

Description

UHMW-PE (Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene) is a linear, low-pressure Polyethylene resin. The weight of UHMW-PE resins is about ten times greater than that of other HDPE resins.

UHMW-PE has a significantly higher abrasion resistance and impact strength compared to most plastics and with a low coefficient of friction due to its self-lubricating, non-stick surface, UHMW-PE finds several applications in the defense and medical industries.

Properties

  • Excellent Abrasion Resistance
  • Excellent Impact Strength
  • Low Coefficient of Friction

Common Uses

  • Conveying-Related Equipment
  • High-Wear Applications
  • Hip Joint Replacement Components
  • Knee Joint Replacement Components
  • Ski Bottoms
  • Snowboard Bottoms
