Virgin Grade UHMW Sheet

Virgin grade UHMW sheet (UHMW polyethylene or UHMW-PE) provides excellent combination of dynamic characteristics. Virgin grade UHMW sheet has the capabilities of withstanding chemicals, abrasion, and it has high impact resistance. Additionally, virgin UHMW-PE sheets also exhibit good wear resistance and toughness, which makes this engineering plastic a popular replacement for metal materials in many situations. Virgin Grade UHMW-PE is also FDA- and USDA-compliant making it a popular choice for applications in the food processing industry where direct contact with food is possible. These and other characteristics make UHMW virgin polyethylene sheets ideal for a wide range of applications.

Virgin Grade UHMW Sheet Properties

Virgin UHMW-PE sheets are lightweight and long wearing. UHMW exhibits excellent chemical, abrasion, and impact resistance, as well as a low coefficient of friction. Virgin UHMW sheets have very low moisture-absorbing characteristics. In food processing applications UHMW is and excellent choice for applications where strong smells or discoloration from food is an issue. The ultra high molecular weight creates a highly dense inert material that does not absorb food smell, taste, or color, even from foods like tomatoes that tend to cause staining.
It is important to note that UHMW-PE Virgin grade is FDA- and USDA-approved for direct contact with food. However, not all grade of UHMW are compliant so be sure to specify when you require FDA, USDA or other compliance. As a stocking distributor tkEP provides full to and batch traceability and, if applicable we provide REACH compliance documentation.
