Product Description

Polyethylene-UHMW (Antimicrobial) Sheet This material is effective against a broad spectrum of bateria. A silver compound is blended into the material to suppress the growth of bacteria, algae, fungus, mold, and mildew over the life of the material.    

Operating Temperature Range is -293° to +181°F.  Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Compliant and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Compliant


The built in product protection of an antimicrobial is effective against a broad spectrum of bacteria. The antimicrobial AlphaSan® silver compound suppresses the growth of bacteria, algae, fungus, mold, and mildew when blended into plastics manufactured by Westlake and is effective, safe, durable and long lasting. Tests prove a noticeable decrease of fungus and common bacteria strains on treated materials. This is of particular importance in many industries due to the fact that a few bacteria can grow into millions in a matter of hours on almost any item or surface. The AlphaSan Antimicrobial additive is acceptable for use in and around food processing areas (meat and poultry). The compound is registered under the NSF Non Food Compound Registration Program, a continuation of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) product approval and listing program as well as with the EPA. Some of the known applications in the food service, poultry and meat processing industries for the antimicrobial sheet and rod include food processing and plant equipment, cutting boards, counter tops, bulk food containers and restaurant equipment. The following physical property information is based on actual test results obtained from actual sheet testing.
