UHMW is an ultra-durable plastic sheet utilized for its high impact resistance and machinability.

UHMW Plastic Sheet Overview

UHMW Material Applications

UHMW was designed for high use applications in a range of demanding industries. The material is relatively lightweight considering its high impact and abrasion resistance. It’s also ideal for high temperature areas as it will not melt or lose its integrity.

Common Applications Include:

  • Chute Linings
  • Star wheels (conveyor systems)
  • OEM parts
  • Marine docks and dock fenders
  • Anti-skid walkways
  • Wear strips
  • Chain guides


UHMW Sheet Qualities & Benefits

UHMW is replacing wood and metal due to its moisture and chemical resistance. It can be sanitized with commercial cleaners without warping, chipping, or peeling. The material’s low coefficient of friction and abrasion resistance means it requires less maintenance and is less likely to damage products or packaging.
