Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Strip

Jul 01, 2019

Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene strips (also known as guide rails, friction strips, wear strips, etc.) have a substrate having an ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene having a viscosity average molecular weight of more than 4.5 million.

Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), a high molecular weight polyethylene, is a polyethylene with a molecular weight of 1.5 million or more. Molecular formula - (-CH2-CH2-)-n-, heat distortion temperature (0.46MPa) 85 ° C, melting point 130 ~ 136 ° C.

The characteristics of UHMWPE are: excellent wear resistance, good low temperature impact resistance, self-lubricating, non-toxic, water and chemical resistance, and heat resistance is better than general PE. Known as "amazing material" by Europe.

The UHMWPE lining currently produced is mainly 9.6 million molecular weight UHMWPE. Its wear resistance is 2-3 times that of 5 million molecular weight. Better performance and longer life
