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.
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)
Physiologically inert (several grades are suitable for food contact)
Good resistance to high energy radiation (gamma- and X-rays)
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.
