Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene

TIVAR® Ceram P FG (Food Grade) is a self-lubricating, glass-filled UHMW-PE that excels in applications where high load, high speed, and severe sliding capabilities are required. Easily recognizable by its bright green color, this grade is characterized by its exceptional wear and corrosion resistance, minimal moisture absorption, and high tensile strength over standard UHMW grades, ultimately resulting in increased part life and reduced maintenance downtime. For these reasons, TIVAR® Ceram P FG components are prevalent in the agriculture, lumber processing, material handling, and pulp, paper, and steel milling industries. It also is EU 10/2011 and FDA 21 CFR § 177.1520 compliant which makes this grade ideal for components and replacement parts in food processing and packaging plants.
