UHMW Wear Strip


UHMW Wear Strip

UHMW wear strips offer excellent abrasion resistance, low coefficient of friction, high impact strength and high performance properties.These wear strips offer low friction wear surface for chains and ensure smooth & noiseless conveying.

UHMW (Ultra High Molecular Weight) film ranging in thickness from .020"-.125" in continuous wear strip or sheet. Using the continuous compression process, which is faster and far less labor intensive then the conventional molding and skiving process, the strips produced are a smoother and more consistent UHMW material for wear resistant coatings. This provides a high quality UHMW product at a lower cost in standard lengths regardless of thickness. Continuous processing also allows for special lengths with no scrap or waste for larger custom orders.

With the ever-increasing popularity of sheet, rod, tube and profiles, UHMW has rapidly become the staple product in the plastics industry. Wear strip, mechanically fastened or adhered, eliminates numerous areas of friction and wear in material handling applications. Processing and treating the UHMW so it can be bonded to a pressure sensitive, adhesive backing also eliminates the need to mechanically fasten and reduces waste. Bushings, bearings, doctor blades, guides, rails, shims, wear plates, liners, and wipers are just a few of the many uses for continuous wear strip.
