About PLASTMASS™ HMWPE Rods (PE 500)

PLASTMASS™ HMWPE rods (PE 500 - polyethylene) are inexpensive, low-stress with moderate mechanical strength. Due to their good sliding properties and medium wear resistance, HMWPE rods are suitable for wear parts that are exposed to small loads. These include, for example, sliding guides, rollers, conveyor belt parts, ram protection and simple machine components. With its extreme temperature resistance, our HMWPE rods are ideal for applications in refrigerated systems, cold rooms and outdoor areas with very low temperatures. HMWPE rods are available from us in different sizes and in the colors natural, black, green, blue and yellow.
