We would like to introduce the latest Amphibious Excavator manufactured and designed with the UHMPE Track Shoes.
The design and makeup of the amphibious excavator fitted with the UHMPE Track Shoes will tremendously improve the mobility and speed of the machine. UHMPE stands for Ultra High Molecular Poly-Ethylene has extremely long chains, with a molecular mass usually between 2 and 6 million u. The longer chain serves to transfer load more effectively to the polymer backbone by strengthening intermolecular interactions. This results in a very tough material, with the highest impact strength of any thermoplastic presently made.
UHMPE is highly resistant to corrosive chemicals has extremely low moisture absorption and a very low coefficient of friction is self-lubricating; and is highly resistant to abrasion, in some forms being 15 times more resistant to abrasion than carbon steel.
Generally, UHMPE track shoes is lighter in weight as compared to the steel track shoes. For a 20 ton class amphibian excavator moving on UHMPE track shoes, it will generally reduces the weight of the whole machine by 2.2 ton.
Below are the benefits of UHMPE Track Shoes:
Long lifespan for the track chain drive system due to the flexibility.
Minimum maintenace of the track plates.
Lighten and speedup the machines movement on swampy land and water.

UHMWPE is a unique, low friction Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE). Combining the benefits
of higher wear resistance (even greater than steel) and lower maintenance costs, the pads are easy to fabricate,
install and can be fastened to steel, concrete, wood and rubber.
We can make different UHMW Sheet according to different requirements with different application . Like anti-UV,
fire-resistant,anti-static and with other characters. Best quality with good surface and color make our UHMWPE
sheet more and more popular all over the world .
