Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene

Known for its outstanding abrasion resistance and high impact resistance, Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) has countless applications across nearly every industry worldwide, and is used to make everything from mining chute liners and farm equipment skid shoes to snowmobile skis and kitchen cutting boards.

UHMW-PE is a linear polyethylene with an extremely high molecular weight, making it far superior to any other thermoplastic for wear resistance, and by far one of densest polymers available, outperforming even carbon steel for wear applications. No other material can match UHMW’s slickness and abrasion resistance.
