B.I.R.S. Machine & Supply custom sheaves are machined from extreme
wear-resistant UHMW-PE (ultra-high molecular weight) polyethylene.
UHMW-PE sheaves are lightweight and cost-effective manufacturing
material which offers reduced friction and longer life in comparison to
Features of UHMW-PE
Good chemical and moisture resistance
Continuous working temperature range of -22° to 180°F
Heat and cold resistance
Excellent dielectric characteristics
High stress and crack resistance
UHMW-PE provides excellent impact, abrasion and chemical resistance. UHMW-PE has excellent electrical properties. UHMW is a popular sheave material, mainly due to its inherent lubricity and low coefficient of friction.
