Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene

TIVAR® H.O.T (high operating temperature) is a premium UHMW-PE grade that is formulated to help finished components maintain key performance properties in an extended temperature range. TIVAR® H.O.T. excels in a variety of industrial manufacturing environments where temperatures reach up to 275°F / 135°C. Furthermore, TIVAR® H.O.T. UHMW-PE components are compliant with FDA requirements, making this material the ideal, longer life thermoplastic for wear parts in dairy, bakery, poultry/meat and other food processing industries where higher temperatures or frequent chemical wash downs shorten part life.
