UHMW MOLDED PARTS

 

B.I.R.S. Machine & Supply distributor of UHMW molded parts. 

 

UHMW-PE molding is a proven solutions to the most difficult manufacturing engineering

problems. Using a proprietary molding process for Ultra High Molecular Weight

Polyethylene (UHMW-PE), UHMW Molded components create the highest-quality,

complex parts with characteristics that are superior to any other plastic material.

 

UHMW CHARACTERISTICS

UHMW-PE has a low coefficient of friction, decreasing the energy needed to operate

machinery. The agriculture industry has found that using UHMW-PE as opposed to steel

in scraper applications increased fuel economy, reduced noise levels and increased wear

resistance. In material handling, the use of UHMW-PE sprockets and bearing surfaces

have not only improved overall performance but have extended the life of conveying

systems. In food handling systems UHMW-PE has eliminated the need for unwanted

grease or oil lubricating methods, in fact, UHMW-PE is FDA and USDA approved for

direct food contact.

 

UHMW-PE (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene)

  • 7 times lighter than steel

  • 3 times lighter than aluminum

  • Unmatched impact strength

  • Outwears abrasion resistance steel by 10 to 1

  • Thermal resistance -460 to + 200F

  • Non-staining

  • Chemical resistance

 

UHMW-PE is a unique plastic with an extremely high modecular weight - 4.5 million to 6

million. It is this high molecular weight that gives UHMW-PE its unsurpassed combination

of slickness, toughness and chemical resistance. Molded UHMW components use 100%

virgin UHMW-PE in every product.

 

UHMW-PE molded components can be used in all types of industres including: 

recreational, agricultural, medical, transportation, industrial, food and drug.
