Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene pipe is a new kind of integrated performance engineering plastic pipe. According to it's excellent properties , the pipe can be used for the delivery of a variety of high corrosion , high adhesion, high abrasion of liquid or solid-liquid mixtures.  So it can be used in mines,steel plants, thermal power plants, chemical plants, oil fields, and in this situation it's function is delivering a variety of acid, lye,crude oil, refined oil, the tailings slurry, CWS, power plants, It's high wear life is 6-10 times than that of steel pipe in strong corrosion environment. All of the above show it's superiority of" energy saving, environmental protection, economic and efficient ".
properties of products
1)High wear resistance
The wear resistance ranks the highest of existing plastics, say 4 times higher than nylon -66 and 9 times higher than the HDPE and HPVC. While compared with the metal, it is 9.0 times higher than stainless steel. Under erosive environment, it is about 20 times higher than A3 steel.
2)Extremely good impact strength
The impact strength of UHMW-PE greatly exceeded the polycarbonates which possesses the most excellent toughness. Therefore, UHMW-PE is considered as the best among all engineering plastics on this part. Compared with other impact-resistant materials, its impact strength is 2 times higher than PC, 5 times higher than ABS, about 8 times higher than POM and PBT. Another feature of UHMW-PE which makes it unique to none in the plastic industry is that its external hardness impact strength can be higher after repeated impact in liquid nitrogen (-196 ℃) environment.
The friction coefficient of UHMW-PE is as low as PTFE, say, 0.05-0.11, which is comparable with steel and copper lubricated with oil and even better. If water lubricated, the dynamic friction coefficient ratio is one second lower than PA -66 and POM. Therefore, in the field of tribology, UHMW-PE was evaluated as the most ideal friction material which performed well in both cost and performance.
4)Excellent chemical erosion resistance
Within certain temperature range and concentration range, UHMW-PE is able to resist various corrosive media (acid, alkali, salt) and organic media (except for naphthalene solvent). Experimental results show that at 20 ℃ and 80 ℃ while is dipped in 80 kinds of organic solvents for 30 days, UHMW-PE reflected no anomaly, and its physical properties barely changed.
5)Excellent stickiness resistance
UHMW-PE appears very weak in its surface stickiness. Its stickiness resistance is second to none but PTFE which is well-recognized as the unstickiest among all plastic. Therefore, UHMW-PE product is hard to adhere to other materials.
6)Excellent impact energy absorption
The impact energy absorption of UHMW-PE is the highest among all plastics, so its noise damping is very good.
7)No moisture absorption
UHMW-PE possesses as low moisture absorption ratio as <0.01%, which only counts 1.0% compared with PA-66. Therefore, there is usually no drying process at all before it is formed and it is very suitable for use in wet atmospheres since all key values remain constant.
8)Excellent low temperature resistance
UHMW-PE can performs very good under as low temperature as liquid helium (-269 ℃) while still having the scalability. Therefore, it is often used as low temperature resistant parts of the nuclear industry.
