Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (PE – UHMW) occupies the extreme end of the polyethylene performance spectrum. With a molecular weight ranging from 3 to 7 million g/mol, PE – UHMW linear polymer chains are 1 O times longer than conventional High Den• sity Polyethylene (HDPE).
This unique molecular structure gives PE – UHMW it’s exceptional properties like below:
Density : 0.92 – 0.96 g/cm3 I Abrasion resistance (sand slurry test) • 70 – 120 %
Tensile strength at yield : 15 – 20 Mpa Shore hardness D • 63 – 68o
Notched impact strength : 80 – 170 kJ/m2 Max. cont. temperature : 80 C
ARUBA CHEMICALS UHMWPE properties have met the full range of material flow. Friction and wear challenge associated with bulk materials.

Benefits of our UHMWPE as a lining:
1.No incrustations of bulkmaterial
2.No bridging caused in hoppers
3.Faster bulk material flow
4.Costo flining exist hopper with uhmwpe is one third of the cost of mild steel
5.PE-UHMW is half the weight of steel. despite being three limes as thick
UHMWPE Lining can be cut to customer size. All different colors are available.
Chutes, Silos, Bins, Launders for fines handling declaimer buckets conveyor skirting, truck beds liners etc. where the surface to be lined needs excellent flow ability and abrasion wear resistance.
