Frequently bought together:


These standard-grade UHMW polyethylene rods are wear- and impact-resistant and withstand scuffs, scrapes, and strikes. They provide good electrical insulating properties, moderate mechanical strength and stiffness, and excellent machinability. They have a low-friction surface that prevents sticking and binding, and are commonly used for food-handling applications, conveyance mechanisms, material handling, and packaging where wear resistance and durability are required.

  • High-impact strength (will not break or shatter)
  • Excellent abrasion resistance
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Chemical resistance
  • Little or no moisture absorption
  • Easy to machine
  • Reduced maintenance costs and energy consumption
  • Highly resistant to corrosive chemicals (except oxidizing acids)
