Characteristics of UHMW Polymer

Share With:

UHMW Polymer is a linear polyethylene with a molecular weight in the range of 3,000,000 to 9,200,000. Therefore UHMWPE is 10 times heavier than regular high density polyethylene.
Characteristics of UHMW Polymer:
First, excellent wear resistance, good low temperature impact resistance, self-lubricating, non-toxic, water resistance, chemical resistance, heat resistance than generally PE.
Second, the mechanical properties higher than the high density polyethylene. It has outstanding impact resistance, resistance to stress cracking resistance, high temperature creep resistance, low coefficient of friction, self-lubricating, excellent chemical resistance, fatigue resistance, noise damping resistance, radiation resistance.
