High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (HMWPE)


Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE, UHMW) is a type of thermoplastic polyethylene (PE). HMWPE is also known as high module polyethylene. HMWPE is a very tough material with the highest impact strength of all currently produced thermoplastics. 

HMWPE is odorless, tasteless and non-toxic. It has all the properties of high density polyethylene (HDPE) with the added properties of resistance to concentrated acids and alkalis as well as numerous organic solvents.

Properties of HMWPE

  • Resistant to corrosive chemicals
  • Low moisture absorption
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Rigidity
  • Toughness
  • Wear and abrasion resistance
