PE1000 - Polyethylene 1000

Compare material
Other material names PE1000 : PE 1000, PE UHMW
Material group: 

Construction sliding material with high resistance to abrasion and wear. It has high impact and notch strength without fracture and low friction coefficient. It is hygienic (only for certain colors) and low density - lighter than water. It features a high chemical resistance.
The highest continuous use temperature is 80 degrees Celsius, bearing below freezing point excellently. When limiting use with higher temperature or higher required allowable pressure you may consider using PA6G + oil or PET-GL. When limiting the price you can consider using the PE1000R or PE500, however, the inferior sliding properties of these cheaper materials need to be considered.
