Polyethylene PE1000 (UHMW) metal detectable plastic sheet contains additives which are visible to metal detector scanning equipment, so that any plastic contamination in the product can be easily identified. It also offers a higher wear resistance and impact strength compared to standard HDPE and HMWPE plastic sheet. Polyethylene PE1000 (UHMW) metal detectable plastic sheet is extremely strong with excellent wear resistance due to a very low coefficient of friction. It also has excellent chemical resistance, very low moisture absorption and is FDA approved.

Key Features:

  • Metal detectable.
  • Good sliding properties.
  • Low abrasion.

Applications: Scrapers, wear strips and machined components. Commonly used within the food and pharmaceutical industry.

Please note: due to variations in metal detector equipment, we would recommend that you carry out your own tests to ensure the correct sensitivity settings are applied to detect the plastic. Please contact us if you require a sample.
