abrasion and chemical resistance
in addition to
the ability to absorb noise makes it
ideal for applications such as:
star wheels and corner guides
chain and belt guides
guide rails and rollers
bin and mixer linings
|UHMW is a
highly versatile polymer.
low coefficient of friction
excellent abrasion resistance
(will not break or shatter)
FDA and USDA accepted
broad temperature range
little or no moisture absorption
easy to machine
|Moving and conveying
presents engineers with the
challenge of finding a solution to
abrasion and sticking problems.
UHMW is the answer in
applications such as:
drag flights and paddles
side rails and skirtboards
dragline bucket liners
friction in the
A polymer that is self-lubricating,
non-marking and very easily
machined while continuing to
exhibit its exceptional abrasion resistance
makes it extremely attractive in applications such as:
bushings and bearings
bumper and sorter push blocks
wear strips and plates
abrasion in the
Todays high speed conveyors
demand surfaces with a low
coefficient of friction combined
with excellent impact and abrasion resistance.
UHMW is ideal
for the following applications:
straight and curved tracks
wear strips and guide rails
rollers and roller sleeves
gears and sprockets
Custom Cut Information:
custom cut at a small additional charge, $1.00 per piece. Here's how to
get it done:
1). Choose the stock size that is larger than the size you need and
enter the quantity. Click "add to cart"
2). In the text box BELOW
the item on the checkout page, write the size that you would like it
cut to. Specify the size in whole and fractional INCHES. Example: 23 X
16-1/4. No need to put inch marks ("). We will consider all figures to
be inches-DO NOT SPECIFY IN FEET. Do not put any other information in
the text box, only the size.
3). Checkout, or continue shopping. Thats it! We will custom cut it to
your specified size, we keep any cutoff pieces.
A). We will not cut a piece into many smaller pieces, we will
only reduce it to one size. We keep any cutoffs. We cannot do
shapes other than a square or rectangle.
Except as noted above, cutting tolerance is +/- 1/16". This means that
your piece may be over or under your requested size by 1/16". Note that
the initial tolerance of the piece we begin with is +/- 1/4", which may
affect your requested size. As an example, say you wanted our 1/4 X 24
X 24 custom cut to 24 X 19. Since the piece we start with is already
1/4" undersize due to the initial tolerance, we are cutting from a
piece that is actually 23-3/4 X 23-3/4. Therefore, the piece we send
you will be actually 23-3/4 X 19. If it had to be exactly 24, you would
have to order a larger size. We cannot accept returns because you
failed to recognize this, so please be sure!
C). Edges are sawcut. We
do not finish edges. Because of tolerance and
thickness variations, do not expect all pieces to fit together properly
if you are building a box, aquarium, etc. Finish sizing is up to you.
you are ordering MANY of the same item and only want SOME of them
custom cut, enter them separately. For example, if you want 5 pieces 24
X 24 but only need 2 of them custom cut, place '2' in the quantity box,
add it to your cart, then specify the custom size. Then go back to that
page and put '3' in the quantity box and add it to your cart.
Cutting charges will be added.
