GUR® – PE-UHMW from Celanese

K.D. Feddersen Is Your Distributor for GUR® PE-UHMW from Celanese

Ultra-high-molecular-weight Polyethylene (PE-UHMW)

GUR® PE-UHMW is a high-performance polyethylene made by Celanese. PE-UHMW is a linear polyethylene (PE) with a much higher molecular weight than standard polyethylene. This ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene has extremely high impact strength and wear resistance even at very low temperatures. A further special feature of GUR® PE-UHMW is its extremely high resistance to abrasion and, thanks to it self-lubricating properties, GUR® PE-UHMW is also an outstanding material for use in sliding applications.

GUR® PE-UHMW is resistant to many chemicals and other media and has very good resistance to stress cracking. Due to its extremely high molecular mass GUR® PE-UHMW cannot flow, so the powdery material is suitable for processing by means of ram extrusion and pressure sintering. For injection moulding and screw extrusion, special grades are available that are suitable for melt processing.
