TivarŽ 1000 - Tough, Inert, Abrasion Resistant

TivarŽ 1000 is an engineered UHMW-PE (Ultra High Molecular Polyethylene) with a molecular weight of approximately 5 to 10.5 million g/mol.

TivarŽ 1000 is available as a compression moulded or ram-extruded semi-finished shape in various colours. Fabricated parts and components can be machined out of semi-finished shapes. TivarŽ 1000 complies with DIN 16972 [PE-UHMW, TG1 and TG2] and also meets FDA and USDA guidelines and 3-A Dairy approval.

TivarŽ 1000 sets the standard for engineered polymers with a unique combination of wear and corrosion resistance, low friction homogenous structure and impact strength.

TivarŽ 1000 is resistant to chemical attack and moisture absorption, and retains key physical properties to -269ēC.

TivarŽ 1000 has the highest impact resistance of any polymer and its coefficient of friction is surpassed only by that of P.T.F.E.

An excellent general-purpose material, TivarŽ 1000 (natural) is a cost-effective solution for food handling problems, and meets FDA, USDA and 3-A Dairy guidelines for food processing and handling. Whether your business is grain, pharmaceuticals, pizza dough or frozen poultry, TivarŽ 1000 material will reliably move your materials and products. The non-porous quality of TivarŽ 1000 inhibits the growth of fungus and bacteria.

TivarŽ 1000 is also widely used in the textile, chemical processing, pulp and paper, mining, marine, steel, water and sewage treatment, bulk materials handling and agricultural industries
