UHMW Machined PartsM&R Engineering creates UHMW machined parts to meet the specific needs of our customers. UHMW machined parts are made from an ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene or UHMW. This compound is a noise-reducing and lightweight plastic.
When To Use UHMW Machined Parts
M&R Engineer's UHMW machined parts are a buoyant plastic that resists wear, stains, odor, solvents, and chemicals. Therefore, this plastic is commonly utilized in the food and beverage as well as material handling industries. We also recommend using UHMW for machined parts due to the fact that it offers lower tensile strength properties than polypropylene but improved strength upon impact. Another great benefit of UHMW, is the fact that it is moisture resistant. This allows for a great lid or cover. This plastic also presents a lower friction coefficient than some metals and meets FDA, USDA, and 3-A Dairy requirements.
