UHMW (Ultra- High-Molecular-Weight Polyethylene)
UHMW plastic is known for its durability, machinability, versatility and high impact strength. UHMW can withstand the harshest chemicals. It has good wear resistance, low moisture absorption and very low coefficient of friction. This makes it great for applications including caustic compounds as well as rigorous cleaning solvents.
UHMW-Tivar 1000 meets FDA, USDA and 3A Dairy Sanitation guidelines for food processing and handling, making it an ideal choice for tough food handling problems. It is resistant to chemical attack. It reduces noise and is self- lubricating and wear resistant. Tivar 1000 comes in natural and custom colors. It also meets ASTM-D-4020-05 of 3.1 to 6.2 million molecular weight.
