UHMW, also known as high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) is a high performance plastic. UHMW is a tough, wear resistant plastic that combines an incredibly low coefficient of friction with outstanding impact strength. This self-lubricating polymer has excellent chemical resistance and a broad temperature range making it the perfect choice for engineers in a variety of industries.

  • Self- lubricating
  • Reduces noise
  • Non- toxic
  • No moisture absorption
  • Low-friction surface
  • Delrin sheets meet FDA and USDA guidelines; 3-A Dairy-approved (natural)
  • Chemical-, corrosion- and wear-resistant
  • Meets ASTM-D-4020-81 of 4.0 to 5.4- million molecular weight




UHMW has a very low coefficient of friction. UHMW also displays extraordinary resistance to abrasive wear by gritty materials. It is recommended for use at temperature ranging from -250°C to 82°C. UHMW is available in sheet, tubes, rod and profiles.
