Northern Plastics' Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW - PE) is low-friction, self-lubricating, and offers the highest impact and abrasion resistance of any thermoplastic.
Extruded UHMW profiles are a cost-effective method for producing “net” shapes like our Chanex® “U” channels and wearstrips with minimum waste. Using heat and pressure in special die systems, we can offer the proven benefits of UHMW in profiles optimized for minimum cost.
Applications include Material Handling, Wood Processing and Agricultural Wear Parts.
