Processing and Application
UHMW-PE dose not melt. Thats right, almost every type of plastic that you are familiar with melts, but UHMW-PE dose not. Here in lies the reason for its late introduction into the manufacturing world. So how do you force a resin that dose not melt into a molding tool and eventually into a finished product? The answer to this question is what has placed Global Polymer Industries among the fastest growing companies in the polyethylene industry today.
IndustrialUHMW-PE is being used for hundreds of applications in mining, construction, chemical plants, waste water treatment plants, just to name a few. These industrial plants have the need for impact toughness, corrosion resistance, and biological inertness. UHMW-PE is used as scrapers, bushings, gears, conveyor rollers and more.
AgriculturalUHMW-PE will make your agriculture machinery last longer, run more efficiently, and will reduce operating and maintenance costs.
RecreationalUHMW-PE is used for a variety of parts for recreation vehicles such as snowmobile skis, bogey wheels, drive sprockets, idler arms and rollers.
Food and DrugTobacco, cosmetic and pharmaceutical packaging machines use UHMW-PE parts operate clean without contamination, lubricants, rust or corrosion. UHMW-PE parts slide easily without staining or sticking. Drive parts outwear those made of stainless steel and cost less. Cleaning with steam or strong detergents cause no harm to UHMW-PE parts. With FDA clearance and USDA acceptance for food contact, UHMW-PE parts are safe and sanitary.
MarineBecause UHMW-PE is non-marking, non-abrasive and virtually an unbreakable material, dock and boatlift manufactures use UHMW-PE for bumpers, fenders, rub rails, etc.
TransportationTruck suspension manufacturers use UHMW-PE parts for wear plates, shims, bearings, etc. Railroad cars use UHMW-PE for wear plates, shims and coupler carriers.
