UHMW Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Truck Lining

This material is used frequently in a self lubricating bearing surface or slide type applications. Resistant to most common chemicals. Commonly replaces Aluminum, Acetals and Nylons. Used frequently in Food and Dairy Processing, Material Handling, Fluid Handling and Automotive. UHMW Rod is machined to make pulleys, wheels and washers. UHMW sheet is machined to produce FDA approved slip surfaces, food process fixtures and scrapers. Other brand or trade names are: Lennite, Tivar, Duravar, Gardur, Solidur, Polyslick, UHMV, Polyfend and Durasurf. Large inventory of UHMW Sheet and UHMW Rod.

Why use UHMW Polyethylene:

  • Very Low Specific Gravity (Floats In Water)
  • Superior Wear Resistance
  • Very Low Moisture Absorption
  • High Chemical Resistance
  • Very Low Cost vs. Physical Properties

This materials is…excellent wearing and very abrasion resistant – one of the best materials made for these properties. Very low specific gravity (floats in water). Promotes the flow of bulk material (sand, soy beans, coal, etc.). Superior material for wear strip, conveyor rails, slide plate, wear pads.

  • Very Low Moisture Absorption
  • FDA, USDA and 3-A Dairy Compliant
  • Superior Wear Resistance
  • Chemically Resistant to Chlorine and Caustic/Acidic Cleaning Agents
  • Offers excellent strength, rigidity and machinability

Still not sure UHMW is the proper material for your application, consult our free Plastic Materials Selection Guide.

Applications – Frequently used in:

  • Food, Dairy and Packaging Equipment
  • Timing Screws, Wear and Slide machined parts
  • Star Wheels, Idler Sprockets and Guide Rails
  • FDA and 3A approved material for Scraper Blades
  • Hoppers, Chute Lining, Feeder Lines and Wear Plates
