UHMWPE, a thermoplastic, has outstanding characteristics that make it an excellent choice for spring energized seals. A semi-crystalline material that possess superior wear and pressure tolerances. UHMW Polyethylene is incredibly lightweight and extends wear-life within chemical applications.
Duron® UHMW Polyethylene
|Material Name||Material Description||Operating Temperature Range (°F)||Wear Resistance (1=Poor & 5=Excellent)||Mating Metal Wear|
|DURON® 15||Extruded Ultra-High Molecular-Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) is similar to Duron® 14 for general application use for high pressure and demanding wear applications. Material is clear.||-350 to 180||5||Medium|
|DURON® 138||Ultra-High Molecular-Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) Reduces the oxidization rate of the material at higher temperatures thereby slowing material degradation and extending wear-life in chemical applications. Color is white.||-350 to 250||5||Medium|
|DURON® 155||Molded Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) Well-suited for sealing small molecular gases or liquids. The material is FDA approved. Material is clear.||-350 to 180||5||Medium|
|DURON® 14||Premium Ultra-High Molecular-Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) with a Gold Filler has superior wear and pressure tolerances, but does not have the same high-temperature tolerance as PTFE materials like Duron® 1. Duron® 14 is a choice material for dynamic high-pressure applications where low wear is required. Color is gold.||-350 to 200||5||Medium|
