UHMW polyethylene sheets are made with glass fibers that make them more durable and wear-resistant than standard-grade sheets. Also known as Tivar 88, these sheets tolerate scrapes and strikes. With a low-friction surface that prevents sticking and binding, they are commonly used as liners for chutes and hoppers.br

Ultra Hight Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW PE) offers light weight(1/8 the weight of mild steel), high in tensile strength,and as simple to machine as wood,UHMW PE is the ideal material for many wear parts in machinery and equipment as well as a superb lining in material handling systems and storage containers.UHMW PE is self-lubricating,shatter resistant,long-wearing, abrasion and corrosion resistant. It meets FDA and USDA acceptance for food and pharmaceutical equipment and is a good performer in applications up to 180 oF(82oC) or when periodically cleaned with live steam or boiling water to sterilize.
