High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (PE-HMW)
Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (PE-UHMW)

Main characteristics:

Good wear and abrasion resistance (particularly PE-UHMW)
High impact strength, even at low temperatures (particularly PE-UHMW)
Excellent chemical resistance.
Low density compared with other thermoplastics.
Low coefficient of friction.
Excellent machinability.
physiologically inert (most grades are suitable for food contact).
Good resistance to high energy radiation (gamma and X-rays).
Not self-extinguishing.

HD500 - (PE-HMW), Natural, Black and colours.
This grade exhibits a good combination of stiffness, toughness, mechanical damping ability with wear and abrasion resistance and can easily be welded. Whilst used mainly in the food industry (the colours are food compliant e.g. red for meat), but can be put to use in all kinds of mechanical, chemical and electrical applications.

HD500R - (PE-HMW), black/green mix.
This grade is partially composed of reprocessed material. Useful for applications where it's reduced physical properties are overruled by its economical advantage.

HD1000 - (PE-UHMW), Natural, Black, Green.
This grade exhibits the best balanced property profile. It combines an excellent wear and abrasion resistance with an outstanding impact strength, even at temperatures below -200 deg C. It is mainly used in general mechanical construction, bottling, canning and packaging machinery, chemical and electroplating industry, cryogenic equipment, textile industry and storage systems for bulk materials. Also available in a partially reprocessed grade.
LDPE, HDPE and UHMWPE are available in our online shop ShopforPlastic in Rod, Sheet and Block.
