M&P can make custom UHMW Machined Parts to your specifications or drawings.

We have a plastic machine shop; UHMW is one of the plastics we can use to make parts.

MATERIAL DESCRIPTION

UHMW stands for ultra high molecular weight polyethylene or UHMW-PE.
Polyethylene materials are semi-crystalline materials with excellent chemical resistance, good fatigue and wear resistance, and a wide range of properties (due to differences in length of the polymer chain).
Polyethylene materials are easy to distinguish from other plastics because they float in water.
Polyethylene materials provide good resistance to organic solvents, degreasing agents, and electrolytic attack.
They have a higher impact strength, but lower working temperatures and tensile strengths than polypropylene.
They are light in weight, resistant to staining, and have low moisture absorption rates.

Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW PE)

Light weight (1/8 the weight of mild steel), high in tensile strength, and as simple to machine as wood, UHMW PE is the ideal material for many wear parts in machinery and equipment, as well as a superb lining in material handling systems and storage containers.
UHMW PE is self-lubricating, shatter resistant, long-wearing, abrasion and corrosion resistant.
It meets FDA and USDA acceptance for food and pharmaceutical equipment and is a good performer in applications up to 180°F (82°C) or when periodically cleaned with live steam or boiling water to sterilize.

UHMW MACHINED PARTS

UHMW Machined Parts are made in a completely controlled environment.

Some Examples of parts we can machine from UHMW:

UHMW O-rings, UHMW Seats, UHMW Bushings, UHMW Bearings, UHMW Guide Blocks, UHMW Wear Pads, UHMW Washers.

M&P keeps UHMW in stock so that we are ready for immediate production of your UHMW Machined Parts.
