Murdotec® 1000

Ultra-high molecular polyethylene (UHMW-PE) as per ISO 15527 Sheet Group 1.2

The standard UHMW-PE with a molecular weight of 4.5 million g/mol is characterized by its very good wear and abrasion resistance. It has excellent impact and shock resistance, very good resistance to chemicals, good anti-adhesion properties, a low density, and a low friction coefficient. Futhermore it has very good electrical insulation and dielectric properties (excepting antistatic and conductive types), good resistance to radiated energy (gamma and X-ray radiation), and is great for machining. It is physiologically safe, approved by the FDA, and can be supplied in these RAL colours on request:
