PE – POLYETHYLENE

PE is a material widely used in the construction of chemical equipment and tanks. On the basis of the material’s molecular weight, we at HI-TECH POLYMERS differentiate between 02 type of Pe; namely PE 500 (HDPE) and PE 1000 (UHMW-PE).

UHMW-PE – ULTRA HIGH MOLECULAR WEIGHT POLYETHYLENE 

UHMW-PE is a tough and abrasion resistant thermoplastic. The material has an extremely low co-efficient of friction which offers the best glide properties amongst most plastics available in the market.  It has an operating temperature from -150° C to +90° C.

Some common applications of UHMW-PE components are chute liners, Guide rails, shipbuilding, food processing machinery components, wear strips, and anti – skid surfaces.

Properties:-

  • Excellent wear resistance
  • High chemical resistance
  • Good protection against stress cracking
  • Low water absorption
  • High abrasion resistance
  • Low steam permeability

We stock UHMW in various stock shapes such as solid plain sheets and solid rods. We can also customize components in UHMW if provided with technical drawings and / or samples.
