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.
