Lower maintenance repair costs to protect your Investment

UHMW-PE (ultra high molecular weight polymer) has 10 X the strength compared with standard HMW-PE materials which allows for very unique mechanical properties of high impact and excellent abrasion resistant qualities. This combination is not found in any other material. That is what makes UHMW-PE the most versatile product used throughout polymer industries.

TSS-1000 (UHMW-PE) is for Standard applications & TSS-2000 is for Advanced applications.

UHMW Sheets

Our UHMW PE does not absorb any liquids and is chemically inert.

To protect ships at dockyards from costly damage during docking procedures, UHMW has proven to be a perfect material to absorb and deflect the energy created by the vessel coming into contact with the fendering system.

In Mining /AGG Industry & On/ Off Road vehicles, our liner materials protect your Truck Body, Excavator Buckets, Dump Body, Shovels etc.

Our UHMW sheets are made of the highest quality material available in the market today. Many sheet grades are also UV stabilized for prolonged outdoor exposure in all types of weather conditions.

It is also available in Endless Rolls for special applications.

TSS-1000 – Natural #50

TSS-1000 – Natural #50 is a UHMW polymer which has a molecular weight range of 3 – 5 mio. This product meets the FDA 21 CFR 177.1520 (USA) the EU-directives and the German BfR for “Food industry applications”.

Properties:

  • Good sliding properties
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Good notched impact strength
  • BfR / EU approved
  • FDA – Compliant (21 CFR 177.1520)
  • 3-A Sanitary Standard Approval
  • USP – Class VI (US Pharmaceutical)

Color:

  • Natural

Application fields:

  • Conveyor industry
  • Machine construction
  • Food industry

TSS-1000 – Repro Black #90

TSS-1000 – Repro Black #90 is a black-multi colour reprocessed UHMW-PE polymer.

Properties:

  • Good sliding properties
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Sea water resistance
  • Good notched impact strength

Color:

  • Black

Application fields:

  • Fender Pads
  • Marine
  • Conveyor Industry
  • Machine Construction

TSS-2000 – Blue # 589

TSS-2000 – Blue #589 is a UHMW polymer with 7 – 9 mio. Molecular weight. By adding a special filler, our material is able to withstand higher temperatures and still hold up its abrasion resistance. The improved low coefficient of friction (non-stick surface) makes this material ideal for lining applications where sticking or caking creates a buildup of material. In such applications where there is a material flow problem, time and money is at a loss. Our UHMW PE liner will help you solve these problems.

Properties:

  • Excellent sliding properties
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Good notched impact strength
  • No sticking or caking of bulk materials
  • Higher temperature can be welded

Color:

  • Blue

Application fields:

  • Bulk goods handling
  • Earth moving equipment
  • Truck liners, hoppers, chutes,
  • Rail road car liners
  • Gypsum industry / Cement industry

TSS-2000 – Red Heat #354

TSS-2000 – Red Heat #354 is a special blend of UHMW polymer which has been designed for use in dump truck bodies. This UHMW liner protects the dump truck body and enhances material flow. Using a special filler material it allows even asphalt to release quickly without sticking problems. TSS-2000-Red Heat #354 is also great in high temperature applications, where the filler acts as a blocker and stops the oxidation which breaks up the UHMW material at higher temps. It has proven itself as an excellent liner in over the road dump trucks.

Properties:

  • Excellent sliding properties
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Good notched impact strength
  • No sticking or caking of bulk material
  • Operating temp. max. 400 ºF (short term)

Color:

  • Red

Application fields:

  • Bulk conveyors
  • Truck lining
  • Over the road dump truck

TSS-2000 – GB #185

TSS-2000 – GB #185 is enhanced with a glass filler which gives the UHMW a higher abrasion resistance than standard material. It offers excellent impact strength for tough applications. The 185 is pigmented Yellow for visibility and is UV-stabilized.

Properties:

  • Extremely wear resistant
  • Good sliding properties
  • Good chemical resistance
  • BfR approved
  • Low maintenance
  • Longer life time over standard UHMW PE

Color:

  • Yellow

Application fields:

  • Machine construction
  • Conveyor industry
  • Agriculture, farming equipment
  • Waste water and filtration systems
  • Paper industry (wet section)
  • Chemical industry
