UHMW-PE is a subset of the thermoplastic polyethylene. Also known as HMPE or HPPE, it 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.
The origin of ultra high molecular weight polyethylene board is USA.That is an American invention and production of ultra high molecular weight polyethylene sheet. Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene sheet is a kind of thermoplastic engineering plastic, its production process is packing-heating-pressure-temperature-die. Although it is made very simple, actually otherwise ultra high molecular weight polyethylene board production must have certain experience and unique technology, especially the ration of raw materials and the heating and cooling time directly affect the performance of ultra high molecular weight polyethylene plate.
Properties of ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene board: light weight, impact resistance, abrasion resistance, corrosion resistance, ultraviolet resistance, aging resistance, low friction coefficient, non-toxic, non polluting, not easy adhesion, excellent performance of foreign body can absorb the vibration and noise etc.. Is the best material instead of metal material. Use the palte to manufacture products of other properties of ultra high molecular weight polyethylene due to metal products available.
The features and Advantages of UHMWPE profiles
--Highest abrasion resistance of any polymer, 6 times more wear resistant than steel
--Anti-Weather & Anti-Aging
--Self-lubricating, Very low coefficient of friction
--Excellent chemical & corrosion resistant
--superior impact resistant, Noise- absorption, Vibration-absorption
--High tensile Strength
--Non-Toxic and smell
--Flame Retardant; relatively low in water absorption
It is extruded from ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene material and has many advantages, such as excellent physical and mechanical properties, wear resistance, self-lubricity, corrosion resistance, anti-adhesion, good sound absorption effect and light weight The food machinery industry has a large application market. Mainly used in conveyor belts, automation equipment, conveyor guardrails, such as: large C guardrails, parallel cushion rails, round cap guardrails, flat-top guardrails, small C guardrails, flat cushion bars, K-type lining bars, Z-type lining bars, There are many specifications, which can be customized according to the requirements of use. Its role is to reduce the friction coefficient. At present, we have successfully provided various types of wear-resistant guardrails, pads, wear-resistant strips, etc. to various conveyor lines.
