UHMW-PE – Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene

PE 1000 - polyethylene

PE 1000 is a pure, unmixed ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMW-PE) with a molecular weight of 4.4–9.2 million g/mol. Of the polyethylene plastics, it has the lowest coefficient of friction and the greatest impact strength, dimensional accuracy and wear‑resistance. This material is well suited to applications that require good wear resistance and low surface friction. We deliver PE 1000 as plastic sheets and rods.

It has the following properties:

Molecular weight approximately 4 million (Light Diffusion Method)

Low specific weight 0.94g/cm3

Extremely high notch impact strength

High Pactene (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene)elasticity

Chemical resistance to most corrosive agents

Self lubricating

Unusually low abrasion guarantees long life

Water repellent

Favourable electrical properties permit many uses in the manufacture of electrical devices, especially high voltage and high frequency devices

No sticking or freezing to the surface

Physiologically harmless, as used in food industry

Stable to -260oC Used in cryogenics and freezing.
