UHMWPE Film W * 410mm L * 2.2m Thick * 0.024mm
UHMWPE (ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene) has extremely high abrasion resistance, even exceeding that of steel. Coupled with broad chemical resistance and low coefficient of friction, UHMWPE is an extremely versatile engineering material for many severe duty service applications.
Slippery like PTFE but super abrasion and wear resistant, UHMW Polymers have a molecular weight average 10 times that of conventional high density polyethylene resins. This higher molecular weight gives UHMWPE polymers its unique combination of characteristics.
Applications include inner and outer surfaces for potable water, chemical, fuel and hydraulic hoses, bottom surfaces for skis and snow boards, linings for chutes to decrease friction and wear, automotive weather stripping and thousands of other possible applications.
- Extremely high abrasion resistance.
- Excellent chemical resistance
- Very low coefficient.
