UHMWPE – Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene
We supply Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene, also known as High Modulus Polyethylene (HMPE). This is an odourless, non-toxic material which has extremely low moisture absorption. It has low frictional qualities and is self-lubricating. This makes it perfect for certain tasks within the construction and engineering industries. It is often used by the marine and agricultural industries because it has high resistance to water, chemicals, UV and micro-organisms.
UHMWPE outperforms all other engineering plastics for abrasion resistance and therefore is ideal at lining hoppers and chutes for products such as sand, rubble and concrete. We can supply sheets and strips tailored to your needs.
