The Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylen has high abrasion resistance (very good glide characteristics) and high toughness at same time. It is low density polymer and chemical resistance is very high.
1. Very good wear resistance
2. Very high abrasion resistance
3. Very low water absorption
4. High toughness (also at low temperature)
5. Low steam permeability
6. High chemical resistance
7. Good protection against stress cracking
8. Food safe
9. Low density
10. High elongation at break
