DOTMAR EPP has released an ultra high molecular weight (UHMW) plastic called Polystone Ultra. This plastic reduces friction, wear, clogging and noise compared with metal and never needs lubrication.

The substance is formulated for optimum sliding characteristics and resistance to wear, abrasion and environmental stress cracking. This means it is suited to mechanical transmission support products and to flow promotion.

It displays some of its greatest benefits when employed as conveyor components such as mechanical chain guides and mechanical wear strips, or as liners for hoppers, bins and truck trays.

It offers high impact strength combined with light weight, making it easy to handle without special equipment. It is physiologically inert and approved for food applications. It offers electrical insulation, with a very high dielectric Strength. It doesn't absorb water and it resists corrosive material.
