MEET: TIVAR® H.O.T. - Can you tell what H.O.T. stands for in my name?

Posted: 6th February, 2015 in Engineering Plastics

I last up to 10 times longer than standard UHMW in higher temperature environments and I meet with FDA guidelines. That makes me the perfect material of choice for baking, food processing & packaging, conveyor manufacturing, grain processing and many other major industries, Can you tell what H.O.T. stands for in my name?

TIVAR® H.O.T. [Higher Operating Temperature] is formulated to maintain key performance properties in an extended temperature range, TIVAR H.O.T. will excel in a variety of industrial manufacturing environments where temperatures range up to 125 °C, nearly 40 higher than competing UHMW-PE formulations. TIVAR H.O.T. reduces the oxidization rate of the material at higher temperatures thereby slowing material degradation and extending wear-life in chemical, elevated temperature and thermo-cycling environments. In many applications, TIVAR H.O.T. will last up to 10 times longer in higher temperature environments and has excellent wear and release characteristics

TIVAR H.O.T. is also a great material for use in conveyor systems or other equipment that is frequently exposed to chemical washdowns in such industries as poultry/meat processing and packaging. 

It can be also be used in applications ranging from wearstrips for spiral conveyors in the baking industry to drag conveyor flights for moving bulk materials in grain elevators, or wearstrips for conveyor dryers in drying and dehydrating systems.

TIVAR H.O.T. (plates) is available as a "Food Grade".
