UHMW Polyethylene

Ultra high molecular weight (UHMW) polyethylene is an engineering plastic. UHMW Polyethylene is a well-known type of polyethylene possessing excellent mechanical properties such as wear and friction characteristics compared with any other polymer material. Another superior physical properties of UHMW Polyethylene is toughness, abrasion resistance and self-lubrication. This excellent physical property combined with toughness makes them quite ideal for many engineering applications.

UHMW Polyethylene has polymer chains 10 to 20 times longer than high-density polyethylene. Over the past thirty years, Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) Polyethylene has emerged as a material of choice as a bearing material in total joint prosthesis because of its biocompatibility and superior friction and wear. UHMW Polyethylene also widely used in various industrial applications

In the market UHMW Polyethylene is sold under brand name Tivar. To find Tivar suppliers in your area, you can ask around or look on Yellow Pages. Online on the Internet is another easy way to find Tivar or UHMW Polyethylene suppliers.
