Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene
TIVAR® DS Food Grade is a modified PE with extremely high molecular weight (average 9E6 g/mol) which, when combined with Mitsubishi Chemical Group's sophisticated manufacturing process, results in a UHMW-PE with superior wear and abrasion resistance over the standard TIVAR® 1000. TIVAR® DS FG also is EU 10/2011 and FDA 21 CFR § 177.1520 compliant, making this grade ideal for components and replacement parts in food processing and packaging plants.
