B.I.R.S. Machine & Supply is a distributor of Xylethon® UHMW Sheet, Rod,

Cut-to-Size, and Machined Components.


Xylethon® UHMW is a dramatically new concept is industrialplastimertic

material. Xylethon® has a smooth and non-sticksurface which is highly

abrasion resistant. The wearing surface of Xylethon® has a tendency to polish

rather than to become serrated as most other industrial plastics do.


The unique molecular structure of Xylethon® UHMW makes it the most dense

plastimeric material available to the industrial world. Xylethon® UHMW is

totally resistant to moisture absorption and is not generally affected by

corrosive fuilds. Xylethon's® matrix contains small amounts of silicon oil and

molybdenum disulfide. Due to the alloyed content of Xylethon's® composite

matrix, it has a superior dimensional stability when compared to PVC,

UHMW-PE, polyethylene, and polyurethane. Xylethon® is the most

cost-effective solution to the problem of industrial

abrasion and wear.




Increased Productivity: Xylethon®  smooth and non-stick surface eliminates material bridging and clogging in hoppers and chutes. The slick flow-inducing characteristic of Xylethon® reduces material movement problems.


Reduced Maintenance: Xylenthon® outlasts the competition by 3 to 5 times, this reduces maintenance costs and lost of production.


Wide Operating TemperatureXylethon® can withstand temperatures higher than UHMW and other plastics. Moisture cannot penetrate Xylethon®, this assures that materials do not freeze or stick to Xylethon's® surface at low temperatures.


Exceptional Dimensional Stability: The alloyed matrix of Xylethon® makes it the most dimensionally stable plastimeric material, resulting in reduced stress failures and superior performance in many applications.  


Self-Lubrication: Xylethon's® surface polishes with use, making it ideal for power transmission components such as gears, bushings, bearings, and wear strips.


Productivity Improved: Xylethon's® long lasting life, superior abrasion resistance, low maintenance and reduced downtime make it the premier abrasion resistant liner in the industry.
