PLASTMASS™ UHMWPE Rods (PE 1000)

PLASTMASS™ UHMWPE rods (PE 1000) are a premium Polyethylene with a molecular weight of 9 mio. g/mol. They have a higher wear resistance, mechanical strength and impact resistance than regular UHMWPE rods, which makes them suitable for a large number of industrial applications with higher load limits. The very good sliding properties make our UHMWPE rods the ideal material for applications in which the frictional resistance of surfaces should be kept as low as possible. These include, for example, surface linings of dump trucks, sliding guides for conveyor belts, and facade formwork. UHMWPE rods are available from us in different sizes and in the colors natural, black, green, blue and yellow.

Application Temperature

 

Our premium PLASTMASS™ UHMWPE rods (PE 1000) with a molecular weight of 9 mio. g/mol are suitable for applications in a temperature range from -200 °C to 80 °C.
