Polyethylene PE1000 Rod - UMHW Metal & X-Ray Detectable

Polyethylene PE1000 Rod - UMHW Metal & X-Ray Detectable 

Polyethylene PE1000 rod - UHMW metal & x-ray detectable contains additives which are visible to both metal detector and x-ray scanning equipment, so that any plastic contamination in the product can be easily identified. The colour blue also adds a visual identification aspect to the product. UHMW has excellent wear resistance due to a very low coefficient of friction, excellent chemical resistance, very low moisture absorption and is FDA approved.
