Polyethylenes PE HMWPE / UHMWPE

Being a partially crystalline thermoplastic, its coefficient of friction and easy machinability, make this material one of the most popular choices in any industry, but it is especially sought after for food processing applications as it is approved for direct food contact.


Two ranges of polyethylene are distinguished and differentiated by their molecular weight:  (HMWPE) and 1000 (UHMWPE).

Our HMWPE is either an extruded or pressed polyethylene with a high molecular weight and high performance.

UHMWPE is an ultra high molecular weight polyethylene with less rigidity and better impact resistance that other, lighter molecular weight polyethylenes. It is therefore highly appropriate for continuous impact applications. In addition to virgin and coloured polyethylenes, we manufacture grades containing additives and variants subjected to specialized treatments.
