PE UHMW plates

PE UHMW plates

PE 1000 (UHMW) is a special type of the thermoplastic material polyethylene (PE), which has a greatly increased number of molar masses due to special manufacturing processes and thus differs significantly from other representatives of polyethylene.
In contrast to other representatives of polyethylene, PE 1000 is mainly used in technical applications due to its balanced properties.
The exceptionally high notched impact strength is worthy of special mention.
The wear resistance combined with very good sliding properties is also often the basis for the use of PE 1000 in technical applications.
With its properties, PE 1000 is predestined for applications in the field of handling technology, e.g. as a coating for hoppers and conveying equipment for transporting bulk goods.
PE-UHMW is also used in mechanical engineering in the form of chain guides, curve guides, slide rails or bearings.
