UHMW PE’s application in the healthcare & medical, and other end-use industry drives the growth of UHMW PE market

Healthcare & Medical

The healthcare & medical segment is projected to contribute the largest share in the consumption of UHMW PE worldwide, during the forecast period. Due to properties such as, low absorption and self-lubrication, fatigue resistance, yield strength, and high elastic modulus, manufacturers prefer UHMW PE over other polymers. UHMW PE has excellent chemical resistance, excellent dielectric & electrical insulating properties, and superior sound dampening characteristics, owing to which it is increasingly used in orthopedic industry.

Aerospace, Defense, and Shipping

UHMW PE is widely used in various applications in the aerospace, defense, and shipping industries. Features such as light weight, thermal insulation, noise reduction, resistance to fatigue, resistance to wear, fuel resistance, de-icing, fluid resistance, electrostatic dissipation, low friction, and chemical resistance makes UHMW PE ideal for use in these industries. In aerospace, it is used in interior design (tray tables, windows, canopies, arm rests, valve seats), exterior structures, propulsion equipment, and so on. It is also used as a base material to shield cosmic radiation in the aerospace application.

Mechanical Equipment

UHMW PE is widely used for machining processes in various industries such as textiles, paper & pulp, foods & beverages, iron & steel, bottling, power, railcars, cement, chemical, minerals & metals, farm machinery, unit material handling, parcel handling, conveyor equipment, distribution centers, and so on. UHMW PE helps to enhance surface lubricity which leads to the free movement of machine components and reduces jamming from dirt, grit, or static build-up.

The most common applications of UHMW PE in mechanical equipment include belt skirting, chute liners, hopper liners, transfer plates, under belt wear strips, guide rollers, diverter bars, dead plates, hitch plates, belt scarpers, bunker liners, cyclones, dragline buckets, pug mill paddles, vibratory feeder liners, vibrator bin discharges, surge bin liners, silo liners, screw conveyor liners, off road truck beds, dust collection hopper liners, and conveying components such as bearings, belt guides, chain guides, curves, guide rails, and wear strips.
