Custom EHMW (Extra-High Molecular Weight) Extrusion
Preferred Plastics, a leading extruder of high quality custom thermoplastic parts, offers products produced from EHMW.
What Is EHMW?
Extra high molecular weight polyethylene (EHMW) is a thermoplastic polyethylene. It has high impact strength due to its extremely long molecular chains. It is resistant to corrosive materials (with the exceptions of oxidizing acids) and exhibits superior resistance to moisture absorption. EHMW has a low coefficient of friction, is self-lubricating and is resistant to abrasion.
EHMW is used for applications in the construction, plumbing, marine, furniture, and RV industries. Some of the custom EHMW parts we manufacture at Preferred Plastics are:
- Automotive components
- Belting and V-belts
- Window components
- Wear strips
- High abrasion resistance
- Great impact strength
- Good chemical resistance
- Self lubricating
