Polyethylene 1000 / UHMW Polymer is a Linear Polyethylene with a molecular weight in the range of 3,000,000 to 6,000,000. This value represents the “average molecular weight”.
Therefore, UHMW plastics have a molecular weight average 10 times that of conventional high-density polyethylene resins.
The higher molecular weight is what gives UHMW Polymers a unique combination of characteristics making it more suitable for many applications where lower molecular weight grades fail.
PE1000 is a high-performance polyethylene with product characteristics including a reduction in dust accumulation, high wear resistance and high impact strength.
The long term service temperature range of PE1000 (UHMWPE) Sheet is from 80°C to 130 °C and has a short term maximum service temperature of 150°C
