Promote Slide and Minimise Wear in Chutes

07 Nov 2020

UHMWPE (PE1000) Sheets and rods come in a variety of thicknesses and diameters.

Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene is a premium engineering polymer offering extremely high level of wear and abrasion resistance to metals and other abrasive elements. Due to its low coefficient of friction UHMWPE sheets are the ideal materials for chute liners, truck tray liners, wear pads and plates.

Furthermore, the material can be used in a wide spectrum of temperatures ranging from -260° to 80°c.

UHMWPE is also an ideal choice for food manufacturing plants due to its excellent chemical stability, low water absorption and non-toxic food grade composition.

UHMWPE Information
