Why choose uhmwpe&hdpe wear resistance strip and anti-wear block for various machine ?
UHMW-PE(Ultra high Molecular Weight Polyethylene )is a thermoplastic engineering plastic with the average molecular weight more than 9.0 million. (PE only has the molecular weight between twenty to two hundred thousand.) This kind of material with five top performance of high-wear-resistance, good-chemical resistance, low-temperature resistance, self-lubrication and high-impact resistance, which is regarded as a “surprised” engineering plastic of excellent comprehensive capacity and competitive price.
Property of UHMWPE strip
Its coefficient of friction is significantly lower than that of nylon and acetal;
UHMWPE strip has better abrasion resistance than PTFE, 15 times more than carbon steel.
With the highest impact strength of any thermoplastic presently made;
UHMWPE strip is odorless, tasteless, and nontoxic;
It is highly resistant to corrosive chemicals except oxidizing acids;
Has extremely low moisture absorption and a very low coefficient of friction;
Is self-lubricating; this property rank the second lower than PTFE.
