Stocked in a variety of grades, polyethylene covers a wide spectrum of uses from cutting boards to high wear conveyor machinery applications. Typical properties include its low coefficient of friction, temperature range and outstanding impact strength, as well as its excellent resistance to abrasion.
Polyethylene also makes Ideal wear liners for hoppers and silos when material flow and rat holing is a problem. When used as a lining material it can greatly increase the throughput of material being processed. Due to the low coefficient of friction.
Available in sheet form, or in cut pieces in various thicknesses. P/U is commonly used for budget priced scraper blades on Conveyor equipment mainly Mobile plant.
Polyurethane can also be cast to produce items for the Mining and Quarrying industries. Some of which are:
- Mixer Paddles for Concrete Batching Plants
- Modular Screens
- Screening Accessories
- Valves and Seals
- Pipes and fittings
- Replacement moulded scraper blades for most popular makes of Conveyor Belt Scrapers
Other engineering plastics that are available are:
- Conveyor guides
- Chain guards
- Bespoke machined parts
