UHMW Plastic - Sheets, Rods, Tubes, Profiles and Accessories

UHMW (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene) is an outstanding choice for relatively low cost abrasion, impact, and chemical resistance.

UHMW provided by Interstate Plastics is also known by brand names including IPX, Polystone, Tecafine, Dyneema, Tivar®, Polysteel, GUR, Utec and Mipelon.

UHMW Overview

Known for an extremely high molecular weight, UHMW features an unsurpassed combination of slickness, toughness and chemical resistance.

UHMW’s molecular weight ranges from 3.1 million to 100 million grams per mole, with an abrasion resistance that continues to improve as molecular weight increases.

UHMW plastic is ideal for reducing wear and friction due to its specialized internal lubrication, reducing maintenance costs and energy consumption while extending equipment life. High durability, low friction and wear resistance are key reasons why UHMW is the material of choice for many applications.

UHMW is easy to machine with common woodworking tools, making it extremely cost effective, and outperforms metal in many applications. UHMW can be machined into virtually anything from small gears and bearings to huge sprockets. UHMW is also moisture repulsive and easy to fabricate.

Reprocessed grades, enhanced bearing and wear grades and FDA compliant grades are available for greatly extended part life. Interstate Plastics is proud to carry four specialized grades of UHMW: reprocessed, anti-static, IPX 2000 and Tivar® 88.


• Odorless, tasteless and nontoxic
• Highly corrosive to most chemicals
• Extremely low moisture absorption
• Low coefficient of friction
• Self-lubricating
• Highly resistant to wear and abrasion
• Easy to fabricate and machine with common shop and woodworking tools
• Extends equipment life
• Reduced maintenance costs and energy consumption


UHMW Applications

UHMW’s low coefficient of friction enhances efficiency and productivity in automotive, railroad, medical, printing and packaging industries as well as for material handling and food processing applications. UHMW also replaces metal in many applications. UHMW (excluding reprocessed UHMW) has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for safe food contact.
