UHMW Plastic - Sheet, Rod, Tube and Accessories UHMW-PE (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene) is an outstanding choice for cost effective abrasion, impact, and chemical resistant properties. UHMW provided by Interstate Plastics is also known by brand names including IPX®, Polystone®, Tecafine®, Dyneema®, Tivar®, Polysteel®, GUR .
A subset of the thermoplastic polyethylene, UHMW (aka UHMWPE) is characterized as one of the miracle polymers of the 20th century. UHMW's host of exceptional attributes such as high abrasion resistance, low coefficient of friction and unparalleled impact resistance, even in cryogenic environments, make it a favorite among engineers and designers in nearly every industry worldwide.
Choose from our selection of UHMW polyethylene sheets, including over 1,000 products in a wide range of styles and sizes. In stock and ready to ship.
UHMW's anti-static sheet is the ideal product for applications where static electricity tends to pose problems in manufacturing environments. With a surface resistance of 105 to 109 (ohms/cm 2 ), anti-static UHMW handles tough conditions where dust and static electricity tend to arise, including those in grain elevators and munition plants .
