Engineered Plastics

UHMW (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene)

UHMW is a tough, wear resistant plastic that combines an incredibly low coefficient of friction with outstanding impact strength.  This self-lubricating polymer has excellent chemical resistance and a broad temperature range making it the perfect choice for engineers in a variety of industries such as conveyors and bulk material handling.  UHMW can be used for many applications such as chute, hopper and truck bed liners, wear strips and guide rails, star wheels, sprockets and conveyor tracks, bumpers and dock fenders and bushings, bearings  and rollers.
