Specifically developed for the Food, Pharmaceutical, Packaging, Bottling & Canning, metal detectable ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene is suitable for use in the following applications: Wear Strips, Guide Rails, Corner Wear bends, Chain Guides, Bearings, Bushes, Scrapers, Rollers, Idler Wheels, Liners and general machined parts, etc.
UHMW PE Metal Detectable is a lower cost material for applications with the need for high impact resistance. Medium dimensional stability due to extreme low water absorption but high coefficient of linear thermal expansion (CLTE). Good performance in cryogenic environment with excellent release properties. UHMW PE MD is not x-ray detectable. Please refer to our list of x-ray detectable plastics here.
