Polymershapes carries standard sizes of UHMW sheet, pre-cut and custom orders can be cut to your desired size. We stock UHMW sheet in dimensional measurements ranging up to 60” x 120”. You can order this material in a thickness ranging from 0.060″ – 6″

This unique thermoplastic features a great wear and corrosion resistance and good electrical insulating properties. In fact, compared to materials such as metals, nylons, and flouropolymers, UHMW Sheet features a wear resistance that is far superior to these others.

FDA Compliant

As well as many other industry-standard certifications, UV resistant and antiskid.

Resistant To UV Radiation

When exposed to UV, UHMW is protected against cracks or disintegration.

Self Lubricating

At elevated temperatures and pressure conditions, chemically reactive constituents react with the contact surface. This helps in to avoid major wear or breakdown.
