UHMWPE

Description

  • U(V)HMWPE is KPIC invented Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene.
  • U(V)HMWPE is a suitable grade for various applications such as compression molding, sheet, profile/block extrusion and ultra high strength/porous fibers.

Features

  • Wear resistance: Best among plastics, better than steel
  • Impact resistance: Best among plastics, similar to steel
  • Low coefficient of friction: Similar to PTFE, self-lubricative
  • Chemical resistance: Stable to most chemicals
  • No moisture absorption
  • Harmless to human body, excellent electric insulation

Uses


  • Ultra high-strength fibers


  • Bulletproof Jacket


  • Artificial Joint


  • Bearing
