Project Description

Polyethylene (PE)

Acrilex stocks the highest quality polyethylene sheets in brand names such as King ColorBoard®, King StarBoard®, King CuttingBoard®, Vycom Playboard®, Vycom Sanatec®, Densetec®, Polyslick®, Polystone® and more.

Polyethylene (PE) is one of the largest volume thermoplastics used today and is available in a wide range of grades and formulations (commonly, LDPE, HDPE). The various formulations impart a wide range of properties to the polymer making it appropriate for countless applications. Generally speaking, PE is tough, chemical resistant and offers good electrical properties with a low coefficient of friction and moisture absorption. They are relatively light weight and easy to fabricate.

Very high molecular weight polyethylene (VHMW-PE) is an excellent choice as an interim material, fitting nicely in it’s properties between HDPE and UHMW.  VHMW is a good choice when increased durability, abrasion resistance and performance is required vs. HDPE, but the properties of UHMW are more than the application requires.

Ultra High Molecular Weight polyethylene (UHMW-PE) offers a combination of excellent properties – outstanding abrasion resistance, superior impact resistance, non-sticking and self-lubricating properties and excellent mechanical properties, even in cryogenic conditions. UHMW Sheet, Rod, Tube and Profiles reduces noise from impact & vibration. It is a self-lubricating material that is chemical, corrosion, and wear-resistant.
