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.
