Descriptions of UHMW-PE rod:
UHMW, short for Ultra High Molecular Weight, is often referred to as the world toughest polymer. Reinforced Ultra-high-molecular weight Polythene Board is a type of thermo-plastic, which combines the advantage characteristics of all types of plastic, featuring in the excellence of withstanding wear and tear, resisting impact and chemical corrosion, self-lubricating, working against low temperature, being low in abrasion loss, light in weight, absorbing energy, anti-ageing, retarding inflaming and preventing build-up of static electricity. It is widely used in the interior lining of coal house of thermo power plants, coal mines and coking plants etc., the raw material storehouse of cement factories, steel mills and aluminum factories, the granary of food industry, feedstuff industry and pharmaceutical factories as well the hoppers at wharfs.
UHMWPE Rod and has no smell with low coefficient of friction, corrosion resistance, abrasion and impact resistance, and wear resistance, and is non-toxic, anti-Weather and anti-aging, self-lubricating. It can allow high operating temperature with high tensile strength, high viscosity, and can be reprocessed.
