WHY UHMW-PE AND WHY GLOBAL POLYMER?
Customers bring us complicated engineering and manufacturing challenges to solve. And we solve them using ultra high molecular weight polyethylene, a plastic as durable as it is pesky. Instead of machining UHMW-PE from sheets, we compress and mold powder into parts with less waste.
Not just anyone can design and produce 3D parts and embed steel in them. But we do with experience and proprietary technology that delivers speed, consistency and volume competitors can’t match. Bring us a problem and we’ll turn it into a durable part. For less.
BETTER THAN OTHER PLASTICS
Simply put, UHMW-PE is more durable and has less friction than other plastics and metals. It takes hits and bounces back, runs quieter and withstands extreme temperatures, giving it toughness for wear-intensive applications.
Unlike other plastics, it’s chemical resistant and doesn’t soak up water, making it ideal for uses that must be safe and sanitary. Unlike metal, it’s self-lubricating.
When UHMW-PE plastic requires stiffness and strength, we embed steel core. When parts need flexibility, we use spring steel. Using compression and molds designed and built in-house, we avoid waste that comes from machining UHMW-PE sheets, as competitors do.
With innovation and automation, we achieve consistency and volume
