Custom size PE UHMWPE HDPE polyethylene plastic plate / rod
What is UHMWPE? Ultrahigh-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) is defined by ASTM as “polyethylene with molecular weight over three million (weight average). Our UHMWPE products have molecular weight range from 3 ~ 9 million. Being chemically similar to HDPE, UHMWPE shows the typical polyethylene characteristics of chemical inertness, lubricity, and electrical resistance, while its very long substantially linear chains provide greater impact strength, abrasion resistance, toughness, and freedom from stress cracking. However, this very high molecular weight also makes it difficult to process the polymer by standard moulding techniques. Compression molding of sheets and ram extrusion of profiles are the normal manufacturing techniques.
Characteristics: Excellent sliding properties High wear resistance High impact strength Very good chemical and corrosion resistance Good noise absorption Anti-adhesive High energy absorption capacity and high stress rates Temperature resistance from -200°C to +80°C Physiologically safe
