hmwpe 500

HMWPE 500 Sheets have excellent mechanical properties, supported by rigidity and creep resistance make this Polyethylene ideal for use in the food industry as cutting boards, underlays in food preparation and machined parts.

Ideally suited to many mechanical, chemical and electrical applications, principally because of its outstanding friction and wear capabilities. HMWPE 500 has excellent chemical resistance, very low moisture absorption, low co-efficient of friction and anti-stick abilities.

HMWPE has a high molecular weight of 500,000g/mol, and shows a good combination of stiffness, toughness and mechanical damping ability. It has high abrasion resistance and impact strength, even at low temperatures.
