UHMW-PE Linings and Industrial Liners

UHMW-PE (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene) Linings and Liners are made from a specialist plastic that makes them the number one choice for a wide range of industrial applications. A particularly impressive quality of UHMW-PE is its molecular weight, which is in the range of 3,000,000 to 6,000,000 – This figure is directly linked to the strength of the plastic, which is approximately 10 times greater than conventional high-density polyethylene resins.

Key Benefits of UHMW-PE Linings:

In addition to having a superior molecular weight, UHMW-PE liners provide a whole host of other benefits:

  • Resistant to all corrosive chemicals
  • Resistant to UV radiation and microorganisms
  • Extremely low moisture absorption
  • Self-lubricates
  • Impact resistant
  • High versatility
  • Low friction
  • Suitable for temperatures between -40°C and 82°C.
  • Different colours available


Materials with the properties mentioned above are popular across many industries, especially sectors that require high volumes of material handling such as quarrying and mining. We recommend UHMM-PE for the following applications:

  • Trailer / Tipper Linings
  • Silo Linings
  • Bucket Linings
  • Chute Linings
  • Bunker Linings
  • Hopper Linings
  • Skirts
  • Wear Plates
  • Machine Parts
