HMW PE 500 - Polyethylene

OVERVIEW
High Molecular Weight Polyethylene / HMW PE 500 grade is very extensively used as a wear or abrasion resistant component on conveyors, chutes, troughs, tension bars and liners. Being lightly 'softer' than UHMW, HMW PE is often specified for cutting boards because it does not blunt the knives as quickly and is food approved. HMW (PE 500 aka HD 500) polyethylene has a density 500,000 g/mol, compared with 300,000 g/mol for standard HDPE or 1,000,000 g/mol for UHMW. HMW PE 500 exhibits a good combination of stiffness, toughness, mechanical damping ability with wear & abrasion resistance.

Typical applications of High Molecular Weight Polyethylene 500 grade: for use with food contact particularly trap and preparation surfaces (food boards, butchers blocks, food machinery/production parts, dough scrapers, food board racking, catering display)
