Brief introduction of UHMWPE Pipe
Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) is a kind of engineering thermoplastics with more than 2 million viscosity-average molecular weight, under the polymerization of ethylene, butadiene monomer in the catalyst. Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene pipe has the superior performance such as very high wear resistance, impact resistance, excellent resistance to internal pressure strength, resistance to environmental stress cracking, eminent self-lubricating, anti-adhesion, the unique low temperature resistance, good chemical stability , easy installation and so on, and it is widely used in metallurgical mines, electric power, petroleum, natural gas, textiles, paper making, food, chemical industry, machinery, electrical and other industries.
1.Long lifespan,more than 12 years under normal condition.
2.Good corrosion resistance.
3.Good crack growth resistance.
4.Little coefficient of friction and low flow resistance.
5.Excellent wear resistence, its wear restistance is 8 times higher than steel pipes under normal conditons.
6.Good solder ability,its interface strength is higher than the pipe body.
7.Good flexibility and anti-scratch ability.
8.Very high impact resistance.
9. The unique resistance to low temperature, workable at temperature - 40-60 ° c.
10. Light weight, 1/8 weight of steel pipe, easy for transportation and installation.
11. Flexible metal flange for connection, easy for installation and disassembly.
12. Smooth inner wall, easy for pipeline transportation.
