UHMW-PE Reprocessed

UHMW-PE Reprocessed


What is the Material: UHMW-PE Reprocessed is a semi-crystalline material produced by reprocessing/recycling UHMW-PE material.

Key Material Features: This material is lower in cost, while maintaining many 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 can never be food grade and may have some variance in properties due to it being reprocessed/recycled.
