UHMW Sheeting 4’ x 10’ sheets
Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene
Natural UHMW – White in color. This UHMW sheet meets FDA/USDA and 3-A dairy guidelines. It is an excellent high wear material.
Reprocessed or Recycled UHMW – Green or Black in color. This sheet is a blend of virgin and regenerated UHMW polymers that maintain an acceptable combination of properties for less demanding applications. This sheet is not FDA approved.
Antistatic UHMW – Black in color. This UHMW sheet protects parts sensitive to build up of static electricity. It permits partial transmission of electrical charge, thus dissipating static build-up.
HIGH RESISTANCE TO ABRASION
Outlasts abrasion resistant steel 3 to 4 times.
An important safety aspect.
ZERO MOISTURE ABSORPTION
UHMW polyethylene will not absorb moisture and swell.
EASY TO FABRICATE
Use standard wood or metalworking tools.
Easy to handle. 1/8 the weight of steel.
Ideal for dry-moving applications where lubricants are not tolerated.
FDA & USDA APPROVED
Odor free, taste free, and non-corrosive.
HIGHLY ENERGY ABSORBENT
Virtually won’t crack.
LOW COEFFICIENT OF FRICTION
Super slippery surface-no caking or bridging of bulk materials.
Not affected by corrosive environment, resists all alkalies and acids except concentrated nitric and sulfuric.
HIGH IMPACT STRENGTH
Withstands repeated impact.

UHMW polyethylene is termed “slow burning”. Combustion in excess of air results in harmless by-products (fumes) which are nontoxic.
As a lining material, UHMW sheeting should not be used for the following: (1) Hard or sharp material, such as rocks or sharp glass. (2) In glancing impact areas. (3) In high-velocity chutes. (4) In chutes that make rapid changes of direction.
