Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Sheet Can Be Used In Medical Equipment

May 16, 2019

The service life of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene sheet is higher than that of steel. The wear resistance is 3~7 times that of carbon steel and stainless steel. The friction coefficient is small, self-lubricating, non-absorbent and non-bonding materials, high impact strength, comprehensive Good mechanical properties, acid, alkali, salt corrosion, no aging, low temperature resistance, hygienic and non-toxic, light weight, specific gravity is 1/8 of steel. Therefore, it is a better material used for bulk material storage and transportation equipment lining, such as Storage bins, launders, etc. Widely used in electric power, steel mills, coal mines and other industries.


Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW-PE) sheet has high wear resistance, corrosion resistance, impact resistance and self-lubrication. It can be used to make hoppers and silos for coal, cement, lime, mineral powder, salt and grain powder materials. The lining of the chute. Because of its excellent abrasion resistance, self-lubricity and non-stickiness, the above-mentioned powdery material does not adhere to the storage and transportation equipment, and ensures stable transportation. Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene sheets can also be used in medical devices: human implants, artificial joints, orthopedic instruments and stents, and surgical instruments.
