PE 1000 MoS²

UHMW-PE – Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene

PE 1000 MoS²

PE 1000 MoS² is an ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (approx. 3.0 million g/mol) plastic that has undergone further processing. Because of the molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) added to it, the material has enhanced wear‑resistance properties. It is recommended for applications entailing a high degree of wear, including conveyors in mechanical wood processing. We deliver PE 1000 MoS² as sheets.
