UHMWPE sheets has an incredible resistance to abrasion. It will outperform almost any engineering plastic for abrasion resistance and is probably one of the best materials for lining chutes and hoppers for products such as sand, aggregate and concrete or any other highly abrasive moving product.
Another important property is it's incredibly low co-efficient of friction. It is one of the lowest of all engineering plastics and will produce components with a very high life span with very low drag, which means very little will stick to it. Its also resistant to many dilute acids, solvents and cleaning agents.
UHMWPE has a maximum continuous operating temperature of plus 90°C and a short term operating temperature of plus 120°C. Its a very tough material, with the highest impact strength of any thermoplastic presently made.
