- Tech Specs
PE500 (HMWPE) Pressed and Planed Blue Sheet is a high performance polyethylene with product characteristics including high chemical resistance, very high impact strength and extremely low moisture absorption. The long term service temperature range of PE500 (HMWPE) Sheet is from 100°C to 80°C and has a short term maximum service temperature of 100°C. With a water absorption factor of <0.01% PE500 (HMWPE) Sheet is dimensionally very stable within humid environments.
Typical fields of application for PE500 (HMWPE) Sheet include chemical engineering and tank building, drinking and waste water technology and bottling and food industries. PE500 (HMWPE) Sheet is a material well suited to CNC routing, CNC milling and welding. Similar materials available from Plastock include Acetal C Extruded Natural Sheet and Nylon 66 Extruded Natural Sheet.
If you have a requirement for machined or finished PE500 (HMWPE) components please ask the Plastock team for more information.
