UHMW Tube Manufacturer in China

UHMW tube is the abbreviated name for ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene plastic tube, which gains an edge over other materials, including nylons, urethanes, metals and fluoroplastics. UHMW tube is a great choice that can be used in applications including bearings, bushings, gears, conveyor augers, bin and hopper lines. Our UHMW tube meets FDA and USDA standards, exhibiting excellent properties, including exceptional chemical resistance, abrasion and impact resistance and self-lubricating properties and is also easy to machine. As for UHMW tube size, standard UHMW tubes are available. Meanwhile, it can be customized according to your required specifications, ranging from round and hollow tubes to the more complex shapes like rectangular tube, square tube, and other special hollow shapes. Apart from UHMW tube, the UHMW tube fittings are also rendered.

Is UHMW better than HDPE?

Choosing between HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene) and UHMW (Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene) depends on the specific requirements of your application. Each has its unique strength. HDPE is a tough, durable material with good chemical resistance. It has a high strength-to-density ratio and is resistant to impact. UHMW features low friction properties, excellent abrasion resistance, and great impact strength. In terms of cost, HDPE may be a more economical choice.

Is UHMW stronger than steel?

UHMW is not stronger than steel in terms of tensile strength or hardness.
