For those clients in the business of building conveyors for plastic modular belting, Rydell Industrial (Belting) Co is pleased to announce that it now stocks UHMW-PE, frequently used to support the belt and provide a low friction carry way for the belt to run on.
AMtex RRR23 UHMW-PE extruded profile is a tough, wear resistant plastic that combines an incredibly low coefficient of friction with hard wearing anti-abrasive properties.
This self lubricating polymer has excellent chemical resistance and a broad temperature range, making it the perfect choice for engineers constructing conveyors for plastic modular belting.
Physical properties of AMtex RRR23 UHMW-PE:
- colour: opaque white
- co-efficient of friction at 22ºC on steel: static 0.15 to 0.20, dynamic 0.0 to 0.20
- hardness at 22ºC: Shore D 62-66; and
- melting point: 138ºC.
