Overview:

Kormax UHMWPE [short for Ultra high Molecular Weight Polyeythlene] has excellent chemical resistance, good fatigue and wear resistance. Specific gravity of polyeythlene is less than 1, hence it floats in water and is easy to identify. Kormax UHMWPE has excellent impact resistance and can be used in low temperatures down to -80ºC. Most grades are non toxic and can be used in applications in direct contact with food and can be easily machined.
