AFRILENE PE500 HMWPE (High Molecular Weight Polyethylene – Molecular weight /- 500,000 g/mol)
General purpose UHMWPE suited to engineered applications where its unique properties of excellent impact strength, wear and abrasion resistance are required such as starwheels.
- Mechanical – Good general purpose PE for mechanical parts
- Light weight – easy to handle without special equipment
- Physiologically inert – approved for food applications
- Electrical insulation – it is a good insulator
- Weatherproof – it doesn’t absorb water
- Chemical resistance – resists corrosive chemicals (e.g. Sulphuric Acid, Caustic Soda)
