Polyethylene PE1000 sheet commonly referred to as ultra-high-molecular-weight, UHMW, or UHMWPE, is one of our most popular engineering plastics. It provides excellent resistance to abrasion, chemicals, impact and wear, and offers very low co-efficient of friction. UHMW is also non-toxic, odourless, and is highly resistant to moisture.
At PAR Group, we stock a wide range of polyethylene PE1000 sheet that offer different characteristics. These include options such as PE1000 virgin and blue, which are suitable for food contact applications and conform to FDA regulations, ceramic filled, which can be used as an alternative to sintered ceramics in high load, high speed applications and metal detectable UHMW, which helps to reduce the risk of product contamination.
UHMW plastic sheet is commonly machined into wear strips, chain guides and change parts and is a popular engineering plastic in food processing and bottling operations. Specific grades of PE1000 are also used in bulk material handling applications to line chutes, hoppers and dump trucks, helping to improve product flow and prevent against ratholing and arching.
We also supply polyethylene PE1000 rod and a wide range of wear strips, chain and belt guides and conveyor wear bends. A comprehensive plastic machining service utilising highly advanced CNC technology is also available should you require.
Many grades of UHMW plastic sheet are available to buy online at PAR Direct, please follow the links below for more information on each individual grade or click the 'buy online' button above.
