UHMW-PE Material Introduction

 UHMW-PE, or Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene, is a type of thermoplastic that is known for its exceptional strength and durability. It is an excellent choice for applications where high wear resistance, low friction, and excellent impact strength are required.

Product Features:

  • Exceptionally strong and durable
  • High wear resistance and low friction
  • Excellent impact strength
  • Resistant to chemicals and UV radiation
  • Can withstand extreme temperatures (-100°F to +180°F)


UHMW-PE is commonly used in the following industries:

  • Food and beverage
  • Material handling
  • Aerospace and defense
  • Medical and pharmaceutical
  • Mining and mineral processing
  • Automotive


UHMW-PE is available in a variety of colors, including:

  • Natural (translucent)
  • Black
  • Blue
  • Green
  • Yellow
  • Red
