Common uses for Polyethylene Rod
Polyethylene rod can be used for many engineering parts especially high wear conveyor machinery applications. The low coefficient of friction, excellent resistance to abrasion and outstanding impact strength means this plastic is often used for pulleys and rollers. With its low moisture absorption, polyethylene rods are also used for many applications under water.
