Do you know the performance characteristics of UHMWPE?

Pulished on Jan. 14, 2020

As an Industrial Conveyor Roller Sleeve Manufacturer, share with you.

UHMWPE Pipe has the highest wear resistance among plastics, which is 3-7 times that of carbon steel and stainless steel. Low coefficient of friction, self-lubricating, anti-adhesion, non-fouling, reducing material transportation energy. Impact strength ranks first among plastics. Impact energy absorption is the highest among all plastics, and it is sound-absorbing. Good chemical stability. Excellent low-temperature resistance. Hygienic non-toxic contact with food and drugs. Can be used to transport bulk materials: applied in the food and feed processing industry; oil and wine industry; food and pharmaceutical industry; textile and chemical fiber industry; building materials industry; Can also be used to transport slurry: used in mining and dressing, metallurgical industry, coal water slurry engineering; power plant ash washing; sea and lake salt chemical industry; dredging, sludge engineering, fluid, gas transportation; Pharmaceutical industry; gas industry; seawater utilization; shipbuilding and petrochemical industry.

Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene has extremely high chemical stability and can withstand the corrosion of various corrosive media (acid, alkali, salt) and organic solvents. It can be used for subsea water supply, seawater transportation, and acid and alkaline water transportation.

Low-temperature resistance

Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene pipe has an excellent low temperature resistance, and can maintain its mechanical properties at a low temperature of minus 70 ° C, which is especially suitable for the use of water supply and drainage pipes in cold regions.


The ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene pipe has a smooth inner wall with a roughness of only Ra0.00022, which does not cause scaling and bacterial growth for long-term use. PCCP pipes and cast iron pipes have a roughness within the range of Ra0.01-0.09, which is prone to scaling and long Moss affects the water flow of the pipe and pollutes the water quality, affecting the health of the person.

High environmental protection

Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene material is a nationally certified environmentally friendly material, non-toxic, harmless to humans, and is the best choice for water supply pipes.

High pressure

The compressive strength of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene pipe is twice that of PE100 and 2.5 times that of PE80. It can withstand largely fluctuations in the internal pressure of pipeline water supply and drainage; the ring stiffness is as high as 8KN / m2 or more, which can meet the requirements of high load buried pipelines.

High toughness

Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene pipes have good toughness and elongation rate of ≥350%. The pipes and joints are not easy to crack when the local shell subsides, which ensures the normal water supply to the greatest extent.

Impact resistance

Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene pipe has strong impact resistance and can withstand the impact of a water hammer.
