UHMW (Ultra-High Molecular Weight)

The Polyethylene family of products are suited for a wide variety of applications, especially, in environments where chemical and corrosion resistance is required. In addition, polyethylene's high impact resistance and tensile strength along with it's inherent low water absorption make it an ideal material choice in wet environments.

  • TIVAR Oil-Filled
    Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethyline (UHMW-PE) • Extruded Grade •Brown Color
    TIVAR Oil Filled is the material of choice for packaging, bottling, and food processing and handling applications requiring FDA and USDA compliance. This advanced product uses oil filled polymers to lubricate mating surfaces with a dynamic coefficient of friction formula of less than 0.14. With TIVAR Oil Filled, conveyors operate more effectively, without the effort and added expense of unnecessary lubrication. On TIVAR Oil Filled guides, sprockets and conveyor components, chains move easily with less tension, stretching or binding. TIVAR Oil Filled comes in either a dark brown or gray color and is available in 48" x 120" sheets with gauge sizes ranging from 1/8" to 2". It is also manufactured in rod, molded parts and some profiles.

It eliminates static build-up problems, meets FDA, USDA and 3A-Dairy guidelines for food contact and exhibits a longer wearing, lower coefficient of friction sliding surface than stainless steel. TIVAR CleanStat can be easily fabricated into components and replacement parts that reduce noise levels in plants and require less frequent cleaning. Its welded design capabilities result in seamless welded components.

  • TIVAR MD
    Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethyline (UHMW-PE) • Extruded Grade •Blue Color
    This PE-UHMW grade with extremely high degree of polymerisation contains a metal detectable additive with does hardly affect the inherent PE-UHMW key properties. TIVAR MD presents excellent toughness and impact strength, an even improved wear and abrasion resistance when compared with TIVAR 1000, and it also features a food contact compliant composition. TIVAR MD has been specifically tailored for use in the food processing and packaging industries where it can easily be traced by the conventional metal detection systems installed to detect contamination of the foodstuffs (results may vary depending on the sensitivity of the metal detection system used).

  • TIVAR 88-2 ESd
    Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethyline (UHMW-PE) • Extruded Grade •Black Color
    In dusty or volatile environments, TIVAR 88-2 ESd protects against the build-up of electrical charges. TIVAR 88-2 can be fabricated - and welded - to provide a solution for nearly any application, whether it's a seamless, drop-in liner; a framed-in liner or even a replacement liner. Quadrant's System TIVAR Engineering continually works on new solutions for current and future application challenges.

  • TIVAR 88 ESd
    Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethyline (UHMW-PE) • Extruded Grade •Black Color
    In dusty or volatile environments, TIVAR 88 ESd protects against the build-up of electrical charges.

  • TIVAR ECO
    Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethyline (UHMW-PE) • Extruded Grade •Black Color
    This grade, partially composed of reprocessed PE-UHMW material, has an overall lower property level than the virgin TIVAR 1000. Our TIVAR ECO grade shows a favorable price-performance ratio for applications in many kinds of industries with less demanding requirements.

  • TIVAR ESd
    Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethyline (UHMW-PE) • Extruded Grade •Black Color
    If static electricity poses a significant problem in your manufacturing environment, take action by choosing TIVAR ESd. With a surface resistivity range of 105 to 109 (ohms/sq) TIVAR ESD handles tough conditions where dust and static electricity can cause problems. TIVAR ESd is an ideal material to use when potentially volatile conditions exist, such as those in grain elevators and munitions plants, effectively safeguarding against static discharges. In addition, it resists heat and protects robotics and other products that are sensitive to dust accumulation and electrical charge buildup.

  • TIVAR H.O.T.
    Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethyline (UHMW-PE) • Extruded Grade •White Color
    Formulated to maintain key performance properties in an extended temperature range, TIVAR H.O.T. will excel in a variety of industrial manufacturing environments where temperatures range up to 275 degrees Fahrenheit, nearly 100 higher than competing UHMW-PE formulations. TIVAR H.O.T. reduces the oxidization rate of the material at higher temperatures thereby slowing material degradation and extending wear-life in chemical, elevated temperature and thermo-cycling environments. In many applications, TIVAR H.O.T. will last up to 10 times longer in higher temperature environments and has excellent wear and release characteristics. TIVAR H.O.T. is also a great material for use in conveyor systems or other equipment that is frequently exposed to chemical washdowns in such industries as poultry/meat processing and packaging. It can be also be used in applications ranging from wearstrips for spiral conveyors in the baking industry to drag conveyor flights for moving bulk materials in grain elevators, or wearstrips for conveyor dryers in drying and dehydrating systems.
