Industrial Gaskets supplies UHMW Polyethylene sheet rated for Cryogenic service. Tivar® 1000 UHMW Polyethylene combines a very good wear and abrasion resistance with an outstanding impact strength, even at temperatures below -200 ºC
Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene – UHMW Polythelyene Sheet and Rod products are manufactured from the semi-crystalline polyethylene – PE family.
UHMWPE is an extremely tough abrasion resistant, low cost plastic, used for a wide range of wear applications. UHMW – ultra high molecular weight polyethylene – is an extremely tough plastic with high abrasion and wear resistance.
Tivar® 1000 is an engineered UHMW Polythelyene with a molecular weight of approximately 5 to 10.5 million g/mol.
An excellent general-purpose material, Tivar® 1000 is available as a compression moulded or ram-extruded semi-finished shape in various colours. Fabricated components can be machined out of semi-finished shapes.
This material the standard for engineered polymers with a unique combination of wear and corrosion resistance, low friction homogenous structure and impact strength. It is resistant to chemical attack and moisture absorption, and retains key physical properties to -269ºC.
Tivar® 1000 (natural) is a cost-effective solution for food handling problems. Tivar® 1000 complies with DIN 16972 [PE-UHMW, TG1 and TG2] and also meets FDA and USDA guidelines and has 3-A Dairy approval for food processing and handling.
Whether grain, pharmaceuticals, pizza dough or frozen poultry, TIVAR® 1000 material will reliably move your materials and products.
Available in a range of thicknesses, colours and and styles of Sheet, Rod and Wear Pads.
