As a top plastic manufacturer, Slideways only uses the best plastic – UHMW – in machining plastic components and chain guides. All types of UHMW (Ultra High Molecular Weight) of plastic used in our custom fabricated parts have thesecharacteristics:
- Noise reduction
- Corrosion Resistance
- Low Friction
- No moisture
Natural UHMW– Our most popular material because it is so versatile for so many industries and because it meets FDA and USDA standards.
Repro/UHMW– Reprocessed UHMW is available in green and black.
CP/UHMW– (Ceram P® – Glass-filled UHMW, good for high loads, high speed. Used in bushings, pump impellers and wire belt pulleys.
DS/UHMW– (DrySlide) is also anti-static and ideal for dusty environments.
as/uhmw– Anti-static formula which protects against an electrical charge build-up. Used in these industries – chemicals, explosives, electronics, grain handling and package handling.
Tivar® 88 (Special Lining Formula)– Promotes reliable, steady bulk material flow, used in liners slider beds, and wear strips.
