What Should Be Paid Attention To When Constructing Ultra-high Molecular Weight Polyethylene Sheet In Concrete Structure?

Aug 01, 2019

Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene sheet has become a high-quality sheet widely used in various industries, with outstanding performance and long service life, and is well received by users. However, some high-molecular-weight polyethylene sheets should be noted in the construction of concrete structures. Matters, today for everyone to explain the relevant information:

Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene sheet and steel construction can be fixed by welding, drilling, special countersunk head screws, and cement structure can be fixed with special countersunk head expansion bolts. Usually when the equipment is ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene board, the longest side of the product is in the straight direction, if the sheet is thin (less than 20 mm), the straight side can be overlapped. For thicker ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene sheets, the edges should be cut to 45 degrees. This allows for a change in length and a smooth plastic plane in the silo that facilitates material movement. The side of the board laid along the direction of material movement can be used to meet the requirements.

In concrete storage tanks, hoppers and other equipment, especially for old tanks or hoppers, the structural strength of the concrete should be checked. The thickness and structure of the concrete have direct contact with the robustness of the ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene sheet. According to the check function, the appropriate fastening materials are selected, usually with special expansion bolts. The expansion bolts need to be placed on the solid cement layer without cracks and holes.

The main matters that should be paid attention to when constructing ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene sheet in concrete structure are these. We must carry out reasonable operation according to the instructions, so as to continuously improve the efficiency of our work. What questions do you have? Please contact us in time.
