The production process of UHMWPE sheet

Share With:

UHMWPE sheet is a polyethylene sheet available the best quality can be applied to the harsh working environment and a variety of uses. In many difficult application conditions applicability is very good. Ultra-high molecular weight polymers such distinctive qualities, which has a molecular weight of 300 to 6,000,000, while the high-density polyethylene resin, only 300,000 to 500,000. This difference is to ensure ultra-UHMWPE sheet with sufficient strength to achieve the polymerization of other products not possible with low resistance to abrasion and impact resistance.

UHMWPE sheet meaning of ultrahigh molecular weight is that it does not melt to flow like a liquid, thus processing methods derived from powder metal technology. Conventional plastic processing techniques such as injection molding, blow molding and heat setting, they can not be applied to UHMWPE sheet. Extrusion is the most common resins used in this process, so that the products produced toughness stronger.
