Plastic Stockist offers a great selection of Polyethylene rod
cut to size. Two polyethylene grades are available to buy online,
the HDPE rod (High Density Polyethylene) and
UHMWPE rod (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene). HDPE
rod has excellent impact strength even at temperatures of -30°C.
Whilst UHMWPE rod has outstanding sliding properties and wear resistance
plus high impact strength even at temperatures below -200 °C.
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.
