UHMW

Reduce noise and vibration without compromising mechanical strength.

This industrial grade material is ideal for designers who want to improve equipment efficiency, wear resistance and noise reduction. UHMW also offers excellent performance across a broad range of temperatures, and resists both impact and abrasion. FDA compliant, UHMW can be utilized in variety of food handling systems.

For additional lubricity, the material can be filled with oil. It is easily machined to precision and can be cut, shaped, drilled and turned with standard woodworking tools.
