Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene(UHMWPE) is a kind of polyethylene with a molecular weight of more than 3 million, making it far superior to any other thermoplastic for wear resistance, ang by far one of densest polymers available, outperforming even carbon steel for wear.
Because of its excellent performance, it has been widely used inthe national industry. The first is the application of wear resistance an impact resistance, mainly for the ues of textile machinery, paper machinery, packaging machinery and other components such as guide rails, gears and so on.
Secondly, it is mainly self-lubricating, which is uesd in transportation machinery such as synthetic ice rink in sports.
Finally, there are chemical equipment that is mainly corrosion resistant and non absorbent, such as bearings , gears, etc., as well as UHMWPE fender pads.
UHMWPE is an engineering plastic with the best comprehensive performance. Its four properties of wear resistance, impact resistance, corrosion resistance and self-lubrication are the best among existing plastics, which are called " amazing materials" internationally.
