UHMW-PE Anti Static FDA


What is the Material: UHMW-PE Anti-Static is a semi-crystalline material filled with an anti-static additive.

Key Material Features: This material is beneficial in applications requiring reduced buildup of electrical charges, while maintaining the properties of other UHMW-PE materials including wear resistance, impact resistance, corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, low friction, and low moisture absorption.

Other Considerations: This material has both FDA approved non-approved options available.
