Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) is a kind of engineering thermoplastics with more than 3 million viscosity-average molecular weight. It differs from PE standard grades in its very high degree of polymerization. Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene pipe has superior performance over conventional HDPE pipe such as very high wear resistance, impact resistance, intrinsically self-lubricating, anti-adhesion, low temperature resistance and excellent chemical resistance.
UHMW is more rigid than LDPE and HDPE, and has better abrasion resistance than PTFE.
Can be widely used in metallurgy, mining (mineral mud conveying, backfilling by grouting ),power (fly ash conveying), sand dredging pump (lake dredging mud conveying, sand pump pipe of pumping vessel), oil, natural gas, textile, papermaking, food, chemical, mechanical, electrical and other industries.
