Product Description:Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene provides superior resistance to corrosion from chemicals and abrasive environments like sand and slurries when compared to other thermoplastics. It also offers exceptional impact resistance, even at cryogenic temperatures and is superior to stainless steel. Important characteristics of UHMWP sheets include low moisture absorption, good electrical and thermal insulation, FDA acceptance for natural (virgin) grades, self-lubrication and chemical inertness (except in some acids). In machined and fabricated part form, its uses include applications in material handling, agricultural, power transmission and food processing machines as well as in medical devices, shipping and recreational equipment. Some important uses are as wear strips, chain guides, chute and hopper linings, bushings and truck bed liners.
