Polyethylene PE block UHMWPE plastic cutting board sheet
When looking for a reliable and durable material for applications involving high wear and impact, look no further than UHMWPE sheet. UHMWPE stands for Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene and is a plastic sheet that offers exceptional performance in extreme conditions. With its unique combination of properties, this material is gaining popularity in various industries.
One of the main properties of UHMWPE sheet is its high abrasion and impact resistance. Whether it is continuous sliding wear or frictional wear caused by metal parts, this material can withstand it. From chute and hopper linings to conveyors or components, wear pads, machine rails, impact surfaces and rails, UHMWPE sheets are the first choice.
But that's not all! UHMWPE sheet has many other advantages that make it a first-class material for engineering applications. First, it's UV resistant, which means it can withstand prolonged exposure to sunlight without any degradation. This makes it suitable for outdoor use, ensuring longevity and reliability in all weather conditions.
Another notable feature of UHMWPE sheet is its excellent machinability. Its low coefficient of friction and ease of processing make it a versatile material for engineering purposes. Whether cutting, drilling or forming, UHMWPE sheets can be easily processed to meet specific requirements, saving time and effort.
In addition, UHMWPE sheets are almost completely immune to chemical attack. It is highly resistant to a wide range of chemicals, acids and bases, ensuring its integrity even in harsh environments. This makes it ideal for applications involving exposure to corrosive substances.
In addition to chemical resistance, UHMWPE sheets are also non-blocking and non-stick. This means that material and debris are less likely to stick or stick to its surface, resulting in smoother operation and reduced maintenance requirements. Whether it is grain, coal or other materials, UHMWPE sheets ensure optimum flow and prevent clogging.
In addition, UHMWPE sheet also has excellent electrical properties. It has high dielectric strength, making it an ideal insulator in electrical and electronic applications. Its low moisture absorption and good electrical insulating properties make it a reliable choice for a variety of challenging environments.
Another advantage of UHMWPE sheet is its ability to perform well in cooler temperatures. Unlike some materials that become brittle in extreme cold, UHMWPE sheet retains its toughness and flexibility even in sub-zero temperatures. This makes it suitable for applications requiring superior performance in cold environments.
In terms of temperature resistance, UHMWPE sheet has a maximum operating temperature of 80°F. This means it can withstand high temperatures without any noticeable deformation or degradation. However, specific application requirements and temperature limitations must be considered to ensure optimum performance.
Finally, the water absorption of UHMWPE sheet is extremely low, less than 0.01%. This property makes it moisture-resistant, even in humid environments, and minimizes the risk of swelling or dimensional changes. This further contributes to its long-lasting performance and durability.

The following is to share the application of UHMWPE sheet in combination with the actual use of our customers.
Indoor Ice Sports Venue
In indoor ice sports venues such as skating, ice hockey, and curling, we can always see UHMWPE sheets. It has excellent low temperature resistance, wear resistance and toughness, and can function normally in ultra-low temperature environment without common plastic aging such as poor toughness and embrittlement.
Mechanical Buffer Pad / Road Plate
The buffer pads or bearing pads of the outriggers of construction machinery and equipment often need to have very high strength and toughness, which can reduce the deformation of the pad itself when subjected to force, and provide more stable support for construction machinery. And UHMWPE is an ideal material for making pads or mats. With similar application requirements are road plates, we offer UHMWPE sheets with a non-slip and wear-resistant surface suitable for heavy-duty truck driving.
Food and Medical
The food industry clearly points out that all materials that come into contact with food must be non-toxic, water-resistant and non-adhesive. UHMWPE is considered to be one of the materials that can be in direct contact with food. It has the advantages of no water absorption, no cracking, no deformation, and no mildew, making it an ideal accessory material for beverage and food conveyor lines. UHMWPE has good cushioning, reduced noise, reduced wear, low maintenance costs, and reduced power loss. Therefore, it can also be used to manufacture parts in production equipment such as meat deep processing, snacks, milk, candy and bread.
Once the wear resistance of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) was discovered, the super wear resistance made it unique, attracting a large number of users and firmly occupying a place in wear-resistant accessories, especially chain guides. Benefiting from its excellent wear resistance and impact resistance, it is widely used in the machinery manufacturing industry and can be used to make various mechanical parts such as gears, cams, impellers, rollers, pulleys, bearings, bushings, cut shafts, gaskets, elastic couplings, screws, etc.
The 3 million molecular weight polyethylene sheet has extremely high wear resistance, low friction coefficient, weather resistance and low maintenance cost, making it the preferred material for fenders in port terminals. UHMWPE fenders are very easy to install to steel, concrete, wood and rubber.
Silo Lining / Carriage Lining
The high wear resistance, high impact resistance and self-lubricating properties of UHMWPE sheet make it suitable for the lining of hoppers, silos and chutes of coal, cement, lime, mines, salt and grain powdery materials. It can effectively avoid the adhesion of the conveyed material and ensure a stable transportation.
Taking full advantage of the self-lubricating, non-water-absorbing, and strong anti-corrosion properties of UHMWPE, we can modify it into exclusive plates and parts suitable for the nuclear industry, nuclear submarines, and nuclear power plants. It is worth mentioning that these uses cannot be accomplished by metal materials.
In conclusion, UHMWPE sheet is the ultimate solution for applications requiring high abrasion and impact resistance. With its many desirable properties such as UV resistance, processability, chemical inertness, low friction, non-caking, good electrical properties, cold resistance, and low water absorption, it has become a favored material in various industries. So, whether you are looking for superior wear resistance or reliable engineered components, UHMWPE sheet is your answer!
