Is UHMWPE Pipe Suitable for Wear-Resistant Pipes?

Pulished on Mar. 05, 2020

As a UHMWPE Pipe Manufacturers, share with you. Polyethylene is a commonly used pipe material. Can polyethylene plastic pipes be used as wear-resistant pipes? Let's start with polyethylene materials. Polyethylene (PE) is a thermoplastic resin made by polymerizing ethylene.

Polyethylene pipe is a kind of very widely used pipe. Polyethylene (PE) is a polymer made by polymerizing ethylene. The product has been developed for about 60 years. Polyethylene is divided into high-density polyethylene, low-density polyethylene, and linear low-density polyethylene according to the polymerization method, molecular weight, and chain structure. Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE for short) is a branchless linear polyethylene with a molecular weight of more than 1.5 million. Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW-PE) is a linear engineering thermoplastic engineering plastic with excellent comprehensive properties. , Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene is a high molecular compound, which is difficult to process, and has super abrasion resistance, self-lubrication, high strength, stable chemical properties, and strong anti-aging performance. UHMWPE Pipe has also inherited the advantages of UHMW-PE materials and become the choice of wear-resistant pipes in many industries.

Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene pipes are extruded from materials such as ultra high molecular weight polyethylene. As the technology of ultra high molecular weight polyethylene pipes is becoming more and more mature in China, more and more projects have adopted such pipes and become a new type of thermoplastic engineering plastic with moderate price and excellent performance. Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene pipe has the advantages of good wear resistance, low friction coefficient, self-lubrication, anti-adhesion, non-scaling, and stable chemical properties. Industry, coal water slurry engineering, power plant ash washing, sea and lake salt chemical industry, dredging, sludge drainage engineering, fluid, gas transportation and other uses.

The main material of ultra high molecular weight polyethylene pipe is ultra high molecular weight polyethylene. The molecular formula of ultra high molecular weight polyethylene is — (— CH2-CH2 —) — n—. Its relative molecular mass is very large, but it is simple between atoms. Linear structure connected in a repeating manner. Its molecular structure determines its low temperature resistance. Generally, the domestic high-molecular-weight ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene pipe with a molecular weight of 3.5 to 5 million has a thermal deformation temperature of about 85 ° C. The lack of high temperature resistance has limited the scope of its application environment.
