UHMW-PE – Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene

UHMW-PE is an extremely versatile form of plastic with some extraordinary properties which set it apart of other alternatives.

  • Resistant to Corrosive Chemical’s
  • Low Moisture Absorption
  • Low Friction
  • Self-Lubricating
  • Abrasion Resistant
  • Impact Resistant

These kinds of material with these properties result in it being used in a variety of different applications.  At Gregory’s Linings we use it for

One of the most impressive qualities of UHMW-PE it has a molecular weight in the range of 3,000,000 to 6,000,000. This represents a weight range of, on average 10 times that of conventional High Density Polyethylene Resins.

UHMW-PE comes in two forms; it is available in Fibres or Consolidated Form. At Gregory’s we use it in sheet form which enables us to adhere it to a variety of different surfaces.
