UHMW-PE SHEET / PLATE
B.I.R.S. Machine & Supply distributor of UHMW-PE sheet and plate in a variety of
colors and specialty grades.
UHMW-PE is ultra high molecular weight polyethylene that has exceptionally high
abrasion and impact resistance properties. UHMW-PE will outwear all other materials,
including metals, nylons, urethanes and fluoroplastics. In corrosion resistance, it has
the same qualities of other polyethylene plastics. UHMW resists wear, friction and
corrosion and thus it cuts maintenance costs, energy consumption and extends
equipment life. Applications for UHMW-PE materials include guide rails, wear plates,
wear strips, chain guides, conveyor fights, bin and hopper liners, chute liners, conveyor components, bumpers, and other wear applications.
UHMW-PE is 1/8 the weight of cold roll steel.
