Materials

UHMW.PE – has high abrasion resistance, low coefficient of friction and nil absorption rate, ensures free flowing of the most difficult materials giving related increases in productivity.

The Plant Manager said:
“We are blending with an extremely difficult mixture of high, medium and low volatile coals and in the past have experienced problems of ratholing and blockages of the bunkers which needed rodding and other unnecessary clearing work. This has been completely eliminated since lining with the UHMW.PE. material.”

UHMW.PE. has been successfully used in industries handling a wide range of materials. Typical industries include:

– Animal FeedsIncinerationLined Cyclone
– BuildingsMarine
– Bulk Transport Mineral Processing
– Cement Paper
– Chemical Power Generation
-Coal Quarries
– Food Sand
– Foundry Steel
– GlassGypsum
– Water & Sewage Treatment

UHMW polyethylene is one of the toughest thermoplastics. It has a very low coefficient of friction, repels water, high abrasion resistance and sliding properties far in excess of polished steel.

UHMW.PE is manufactured through the use of a sinter press sheet; the basic polymer is sintered in an enclosed platen press at high temperatures and pressures to create sheets up to 100mm thick.
