HMPE products

HMPE is short for High Molecular Polyethylene (PE). The material is applied in the food industry as chopping boards, rolling pins and chopping blocks. It is also applied in fenders in ports and locks. And it is applied in wearing parts for technical applications with a constant cutting, abrasive or rolling effect as well. Ridderflex always has rod and sheeting material in stock.

HMPE properties

One of the best known properties of High Molecular PE is the high wear resistance against abrasive, cutting and rolling loads. The material is also food grade, does not absorb moisture and has a good machinability. The material has an average molecular weight of 500,000 g per mol. This polyethylene type is better wear resistant and impact resistant than our standard HDPE.

Ridderflex supplies High Molecular Polyethylene products mainly in the colours white, black and green. Other colours such as blue, red and yellow are also available. For outdoor applications we usually apply a UV-resistant black grade.
