UHMW Polyethylene Seals - High Polyethylene Seal

Ultra-High Molecular-Weight (UHMW) Polyethylene Seal

UHMWPE, a thermoplastic, has outstanding characteristics that make it an excellent choice for spring energized seals. A semi-crystalline material that possesses superior wear and pressure tolerances. UHMW Polyethylene is incredibly lightweight and extends wear-life within chemical applications.

Duron® UHMW Polyethylene

Material NameMaterial DescriptionOperating 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
