• Product Details

UHWM Polyethylene is an incredibly versatile thermoplastic that finds application across a diverse range of industries.  Thanks to its high impact strength, excellent wear and corrosion resistance, and low moisture absorption, it is highly sought after for use in industrial machinery.

One of the best things about UHWM Polyethylene is its exceptional toughness and durability.  It is highly resistant to damage and can withstand heavy use without showing any signs of wear and tear.  Additionally, its low friction surface and good electrical properties make it a popular choice for a variety of applications.

At BERGEK we have the capability to machine UHWM Polyethylene to create a wide range of custom parts and components, including mounting blocks, bearings, guide rails, sprockets, starwheels, and guide blocks, among others.  Our state-of-the-art machining processes allow us to create highly precise and accurate parts that meet our customers' exact specifications.

We understand that fastening UHMW polyethylene can be a challenge for many manufacturers. That's why we offer the ability to tap this material and install fasteners as needed. However, please note that we do not carry any stocked fasteners for plastics, but we can order them on request for an additional lead time and cost.

When it comes to tapping UHMW polyethylene, we recommend using a coarse-pitched thread over a fine-pitched thread. This is because a coarse thread will provide more bite and a better grip, which can help prevent the fastener from loosening over time.

If you're looking for a more cost-effective option for installing fasteners, we suggest using self-clinching nuts or studs that can be installed into the mating metal parts and then screwed into place. This can help provide a more secure and reliable fastening solution without the need for tapping.

However, if you do decide to go with a threaded insert, Our team can help you choose the right fastening solution for your specific needs, and we'll work closely with you to ensure that your parts are machined to the highest standards of precision and quality.
