TIVAR® UHMWPE Grades

TIVAR® is the brand name of Quadrant EPP for its extensive range of virgin, partially reprocessed, colored or modified Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene stock shapes. 

Although exhibiting considerably lower mechanical strength, stiffness and creep resistance than Ertalon/ Nylatron, Ertacetal and Ertalyte, the range of TIVAR ® grades meets the demands of many industries and this from cryogenic temperatures up to about 85 °C. These materials show outstanding impact strength, excellent wear and abrasion resistance, low friction and excellent release properties.

Product Overview

  • Very good wear and abrasion resistance 
  • High impact strength, even at low temperatures (particularly PE-UHMW) 
  • Excellent chemical resistance 
  • Low coefficient of friction 
  • Excellent release properties 
  • Very low water absorption 
  • Moderate mechanical strength, stiffness and creep resistance 
  • Very good electrical insulating and dielectric properties (except static dissipative grades) 
  • Excellent machinability 
  • Physiologically inert (several grades are suitable for food contact) 
  • Good resistance to high energy radiation (gamma- and X-rays) 
  • Not self-extinguishing

Note if Food Grades acc to EU 10/2011 are required it must be advised at time of enquiry, as they are purchased and certified to Order.
