DPI is the Only Source for Injection Molded UHMW Plastic Parts, Providing Unparalleled Benefits of Wear Resistance, Corrosion and Chemical Resistance, and Low Friction
DPI’s Injection Molded UHMW-PE (Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene) is an excellent material choice for parts and components that require structural strength, low friction, lubricity, abrasion resistance, and corrosion resistance. It is an extremely durable, yet lightweight, engineered plastic material. Because of its unique molecular/structural properties, UHMW-PE provides benefits that make it superior to any other plastic as well as metals – in fact UHMW-PE is an excellent metal alternative in many applications.
Injection-moldable UHMW-PE resin is an extraordinarily versatile material suited to thousands of industrial applications.
Injection molding reduces time and costs relative to machined plastic components. It allows for production options such as over-molding on other materials, bonding with elastomers, and even molding around threaded metal inserts or objects. It makes it easy to mold-in valuable information such as company names and logos, part numbers, custom colors, and manufacturing dates.
