Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), not only reduces friction, wear, clogging and noise compared with metal, but also never needs lubrication.
Virtually unbreakable, UHMWPE is especially formulated for optimum sliding characteristics and resistance to wear and abrasion. This means it is ideally suited to mechanical transmission support products and to flow promotion.
Increase Chain Life - UHMWPE displays some of its greatest benefits when employed as chain wear guide strips or profiles. Excessive chain wear leads to premature and often unpredicted – chain elongation.
This introduces chain oscillation, destabilizes the chain drive, and reduces the operational life of the chain. Elimination of these problems cuts downtime and maintenance, substantially reducing overall costs and minimizing the risk of expensive disruption caused by unscheduled breaks in production.
