New generation UHMWPE linings outperform metals in bulk handling, minproc and transport applications


A new generation engineering plastic from Cut To Size Plastics is typically eight times lighter than comparable steel liners used to curtail friction, wear and material flow challenges in diverse applications requiring no moisture absorption, outstanding chemical resistance and corrosion prevention.

The low-friction Wefapress Flex Line UHMWPE range from Cut To Size Plastics is part of a broad range of engineering thermoplastics that have become disruptor technologies in production engineering and bulk materials handling systems as processing plants and machinery producers focus on low-wear, low friction products that are more efficient, cleaner and quieter and less wasteful than traditional materials that wear out faster.

The clean, easily handled product offers excellent impact resistance and flow characteristics to help prevent blockages and material hang-up. It has been particularly successful internationally in heavy duty mining, rail and transport applications, with rail cars using the liner able to carry up to 10 tons more material, says Cut To Size Plastics Managing Director Mr Laurie Green.
