Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE)

Categories: ,


Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) is a tough plastic with high abrasion resistance along with good wear resistance.
This resistance to wear combined with low friction and very low water absorption characteristics allow UHMWPE materials to be utilized in a broad range of applications.
