TIVAR 1000

TIVAR 1000

TIVAR 1000 Meets FDA and USDA guidelines; 3-A Dairy-approved (natural), Reduces noise, Self-lubricating, Chemical-, corrosion- and wear-resistant, No moisture absorption, Non-toxic, low-friction surface, Meets ASTM-D-4020-05 of 3.1 to 6.2-million molecular weight,TIVAR­ 1000 sets the standard for engineered polymers with a unique combination of wear and corrosion resistance, low friction surface and impact strength. TIVAR­ 1000 is resistant to chemical attack and moisture absorption, and retains key physical properties to -30° C.

An excellent general-purpose material, TIVAR­ 1000 (natural) is a cost-effective solution for food handling problems, and meets FDA, USDA and 3-A Dairy guidelines for food processing and handling. Quadrant also offers custom colors compounded with FDA/USDA approved pigments, which meet FDA and USDA guidelines for food processing and handling. Whether your business is grain, pharmaceuticals, pizza dough or frozen poultry, TIVAR­ material will reliably move your  materials and products.

TIVAR 1000 (natural) UHMW is a cost-effective solution for food handling problems, and meets FDA, USDA and 3-A Dairy guidelines for food processing and handling. TIVAR 1000 UHMW was developed by Poly Hi Solidur (now Quadrant EPP) is also available in custom colors compounded with FDA/USDA approved pigments, which meet FDA and USDA guidelines for food processing and handling.

Tivar 1000 UHMW sheet is the work horse of engineered plastics.Tivar 1000 UHMW natural sheet is used extensively as a wear material with huge impact strength! It is the low cost, 'entry level' material that routinely outperforms many other plastics. Because it has a water absorption rate of basically zero, Tivar 1000 UHMW can be used in moist or submerged applications where nylon would not be recommended. Tivar 1000 UHMW sheet also meets all government regulations for use in food processing and handling.

TIVAR 1000 UHMW(Ultra high molecular weight) is superior ultra high molecular weight sheet that is extremely tough as well as incredibly abrasion resistant. With very low co-efficient of friction, this material is best used in rough duty applications. As with most plastics, care must be taken when machining to ensure dimensional stability is maintained. Typical applications for ultra high molecular weight polyethylene sheet(UHMW) include; most wear applications, hopper liners, bearings, bushings, pipe saddles, conveyor guides and numerous others. Various modified forms are also used to broaden the scope of applications.
