Melt-Processible UHMWPE

March 9, 2006
Ultrahigh-molecular-weight polyethylenes (UHMWPW) are now melt processible.

The Luvotech line of UHMWPE compounds can be extruded or injection molded using standard equipment. The compounds have physical properties similar to traditional ram-extruded or compression-molded UHMWPE grades, including high wear resistance and good lubricity and hardness. Luvotech TLC10528 is the standard natural-white grade, but other custom colors are available, including deep tones and bright hues.
