Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) is a type of polyethylene plastic with a molecular weight of greater than 3.1 million g/mol. It is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic with a high degree of crystallinity, making it extremely strong and resistant to abrasion. UHMWPE is used in a variety of applications, including medical implants, industrial components, and consumer products. It is also used in the manufacture of ballistic armor, as it is lightweight and highly resistant to penetration. UHMWPE is also used in the manufacture of conveyor belts, as it is resistant to wear and tear and has a low coefficient of friction. UHMWPE is a versatile material, and its properties can be tailored to meet specific requirements. It is available in a range of colors, and can be processed using a variety of methods, including injection molding, extrusion, and compression molding. Some companies in the UHMWPE market include Celanese Corporation, Quadrant EPP, Ensinger, and Polymer Industries. Show Less Read more
