UHMW Polyethylene (UHMWPE), also known as high molecular weight polyethylene, is a is a high performance plastic, machinable thermoplastic, used widely across many industries including food and beverage, bottling and canning, conveying, material handling, and packaging. UHMW Polyethylene is a highly durable, cost-efficient, and versatile material with superior impact and chemical resistance. UHMW Polyethylene rod is known for high impact strength, resistance to corrosive chemicals, low moisture absorption and abrasion resistance. Its toughness, extremely low coefficient of friction, and inherent lubricity make UHMWPE ideal for applications where high levels of friction are likely to arise. Our UHMWPE natural and UHMWPE black products can be cut-to-size to suit your needs and shipped to you just-in-time.
