Formulated to maintain key performance properties in an extended temperature range, TIVAR® H.O.T. will excel in a variety of industrial manufacturing environments where temperatures range up to 275° F, nearly 100 higher than competing UHMW-PE formulations. TIVAR® H.O.T. reduces the oxidization rate of the material at higher temperatures thereby slowing material degradation and extending wear-life in chemical, elevated temperature and thermo-cycling environments. In many applications, TIVAR® H.O.T. will last up to 10 times longer in higher temperature environments and has excellent wear and release characteristics. TIVAR® H.O.T. is also a great material for use in conveyor systems or other equipment that is frequently exposed to chemical washdowns in such industries as poultry/meat processing and packaging. It can be also be used in applications ranging from wearstrips for spiral conveyors in the baking industry to drag conveyor flights for moving bulk materials in grain elevators, or wearstrips for conveyor dryers in drying and dehydrating systems. TIVAR® H.O.T. is white and available in the following standard sizes: 48″ x 120″ sheets with gauges ranging from 1/16″ to 6″ and 48″ x 240″ sheets with gauges ranging from  3/4″ to 3″. Other sizes are available on request. It can also be extruded in a variety of standard and custom profiles.
