UHMW PE - Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene
UHMWPE is odorless, tasteless, and nontoxic. It embodies all the characteristics of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) .
Average molecular weight of about 6.0 mil g/mol more.
It has extremely low moisture absorption and a very low coefficient of friction and is highly resistant to abrasion.
Its coefficient of friction is significantly lowest and has better abrasion resistance than PTFE.
. Low density
. High impact strength, even at lower temperature.
. Good chemical resistance
. Good wear resistance
. High toughness. Low water absorption
. Excellent machinability
