UHMW Polymer (plastic) is a linear polyethylene with a molecular weight in the range of 3,000,000 to 6,000,000. This value represents the "average molecular weight". Therefore UHMW is 10 times heavier than regular high density polyethylene.
The highest abrasion resistance
Outstanding impact strength even at low temperatures
Excellent sliding material due to low coefficient of friction
Easily machined with common woodworking tools
1/4" x 4" x 48 " sheet (All sizes, thickness, length and width are approximate. Sheet sizes may vary slightly from sheet to sheet.)
