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. UHMW modified to meet particular application requirements through formulations with additives and fillers create special and premium grades with the enhanced desired property.
Molybdenum disulfide is growing in popularity as an additive since it even further reduces the coefficient of friction. As a dry lubricant, it performs extremely well without attracting dust and dirt. Moly filled UHMW applications include various conveyor components such as curve tracks and guide rails, as well as nonstick liners and wear plates.
