UHMW parts is one of the most popular thermoplastics for industrial applications. It has the highest impact strength of the thermoplastics, and is highly resistant to most corrosive materials and moisture. It is highly abrasion-resistant, has an extremely low coefficient of friction, and is self-lubricating. It is easy to machine.
What are the main benefits and features of UHMW parts?
Abrasion resistant – can outlast steel many times over in the right application
Impact and stress crack resistant
Low coefficient of friction – reduces electricity consumption
No notch sensitivity – won’t easily crack from corners
Chemically resistant to a wide range of compounds
An insulator – will help reduce noise created from impact
Won’t absorb moisture – won’t rot or smell
High Impact strength
Non toxic/Non hazardous
Available in FDA compliant grades
