PE1000 (Polyethylene UHMW, ultra high molecular weight PE)

PE 1000 has a very balanced property profile.

This plastic combines good wear and abrasion resistance with outstanding impact resistance, even at temperatures below -200 ° C.


The properties of PE1000 are:
  • Excellent wear and abrasion resistance
  • High impact resistance, even at low temperatures
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Low density compared to other thermoplastics
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Excellent dimensional stability
  • Very low water absorption
  • Moderate mechanical strength, stiffness and creep resistance
  • Very good electrical insulation and dielectric properties (with the exception of static dissipative types)
  • Excellent machinability
  • Physiologically harmless (several types are suitable for contact with food)
  • Good resistance to high-energy radiation (gamma and X-rays)
  • Not self-extinguishing (except TIVAR® Burnguard)


PE1000 can be used in the following areas:
  • Format parts for packaging and filling machines
  • Sliding elements
  • Sliding profiles and chain guides
  • Gears with a large module (eg in the galvanic industry)

Modification options

  • PE1000, black antistatic (addition of carbon black)
  • PE1000 Regenerat (low-cost material)
  • see "Tivar®"
