Murdotec® 1000 AB

Ultra-high molecular polyethylene (UHMW-PE) as per ISO 15527, sheet group 1.2

A reliable plastic for the food sector. Murdotec® 1000 AB is our antimicrobial material. Germ formation is suppressed not only on the surface but also throughout the material. The growth of microbes (for example, Escherichia coli/Staphylococcus aureus) can be reduced by up to 99.99% in comparison with other materials. As a result, this material is typically used for cutting boards and ram guards. Processing and cleaning agents do not impair the properties of the material in any way. Murdotec® 1000 AB is approved for use in the food industry (EU and FDA).

Product handling information

Do you have questions about this plastic?

The premium UHMW-PE with a molecular weight of 5 million g/mol is characterised by its very good wear and abrasion resistance. Murdotec® 1000 has excellent impact and shock resistance, very good resistance to chemicals, good anti-adhesion properties, a low density, and a low coefficient of friction. It also has very good electrical insulation and dielectric properties (except for static dissipation and conductive types), good resistance to radiated energy (gamma and X-ray radiation), and is great for machining. It is physiologically safe, approved by the FDA, and can be supplied in various RAL colours on request.
