UHMWPE products are excellent for high quality technical applications. Also for very abrasive applications, such as the lining of silos, funnels and transport gutters. Ridderflex offers you an extensive range of products. We have a large stock of rod and sheeting material.
Ultra High Molecular Polyethylene has a molecular weight of more than 1000,000 g per mol. This polyethylene type is more wear resistant and impact resistant than HMPE and is used for heavy loads. The material has a good wear resistance against abrasive, cutting and rolling loads. It is therefore often used as a wearing part for supply and drain lines in production systems. Ridderflex has also a more wear-resistant alternative, a ‘super lining’ product called Polargard®.
The material is food grade, does not absorb moisture and has a good machinability. Ridderflex supplies UHMWPE 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.
We supply the following Ultra High Molecular Polyethylene products:
Bush bearing / sleeve bearing
Spacer / Ring
Wear plates / wear strips
