UHMW Polyethylene Channels
UHMW polyethylene channels can reduce abrasion and resistance in chain-driven or belt-driven machinery. UHMW (Ultra-High-Molecular-Weight) polyethylene is a thermoplastic polyethylene that is resistant to concentrated acids and alkalis. Appropriately named, a U channel UHMW has a wide base with shorter sides, and can be used for many coal, cement, lumber, paper, steel, grain, mining, and manufacturing applications. A C channel UHMW has a wide base with shorter sides that bend inward, which allows for less friction and smoother mobility. Zoro also has a super selection of UHMW polyethylene sheets, UHMW polyethylene tubes, and UHMW polyethylene rods.
