Polypropylene is an economical material that offers a combination of outstanding physical, mechanical, thermal, and electrical properties not found in any other thermoplastic. Compared to low or high density polyethylene, it has a lower impact strength, but superior working temperature and tensile strength. Noted for its excellent chemical resistance in corrosive environments, polypropylene provides excellent resistance to organic solvents, degreasing agents and electrolytic attack. It is light in weight, resistant to staining, and has a low moisture absorption rate.

UHMW Polyethylene Film has extremely high abrasion resistance, exceeding the abrasion resistance of steel. Coupled with broad chemical resistance and low coefficient of friction makes UHMW an extremely versatile engineering material for many severe service applications. Slippery like Teflon® Fluoropolymer, but super abrasion & wear resistant. UHMW Polymers have a molecular weight average 10 times that of conventional high density polyethylene resins. Higher molecular weight gives UHMW Polymers its unique combination of characteristics Applications: Inner and outer surfaces for potable water, chemical, fuel and hydraulic hoses, bottom surfaces for skis and snow boards, linings for chutes to decrease friction and wear.
