Ulpolen1000® (UHMWPE)

Ulpolen1000® (UHMWPE)

ULPOLEN1000® (PE1000) is a type of polyethylene with average molecular weight over 5 million. ULPOLEN1000®’s resistance to impact and wear is much higher than that of other plastics in a wide temperature interval.
Standard Ulpolen1000® is the universal type primarily preferred on the condition that its technical properties meet operating environment requirements. It is more cost efficient compared to special types with additives. One major problem in the identification and selection of materials is the difficulty in distinguishing Ulpolen1000®(PE1000)from other lower quality polyethylene types in terms of physical apperance. The main differences in technical properties are evidenced in laboratory tests. Variations of Ulpolen1000® (PE1000) within its group according to molecular weights and its physical similarity to other polyethylene types are vital factors that should be carefully studied to select the right material for the application. In addition to “1000” quality, there are subgroups with different technical properties such as Ulpolen® 500 which is primarily used in food industry as cutting plates (with 0.5 million molecular weight).
It is possible to improve Ulpolen1000®'s technical properties through additives depending on the application. Additives inevitibly increase cost, but when life time of material and initial lining effort are considered, advantages of selecting the right material become evident.
