TURNING COMPLEXITY INTO REALITY
Many competitors craft only simple parts from UHMW-PE because they lack the know-how to mold complex shapes. Through experience and a proprietary molding process, Global Polymer developed the ability to create complicated, 3D shapes. And to overcome another perceived drawback of UHMW-PE material – lack of stiffness – we’ve learned to embed steel core and spring steel, giving parts rigidity or flexibility depending on the need.
