PE 1000 PROTECT - polyethylene

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

PE 1000 PROTECT - polyethylene

PE 1000 PROTECT has a multi-layer structure consisting of a sheet of PE 1000 and oil-resistant nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR). Because of its rubber component, the material is shock‑absorbent. Glue may be used on the rubber side. We deliver PE 1000 Protect as plastic sheets.
