FDA & USDA Approved UHMW…

Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW) has great qualities such as:  High impact strength, Excellent machiability, Low surface friction and it’s Corrosion resistant. But certain grades are FDA and USDA approved for use in food production/handling. This is great news as there are so many applications where “use & abuse” of products is common, but constantly replacing them is not an option that you want to look at.  Here are a couple of applications of FDA approved UHMW. -Automatic Cheese Slicer-Meat Packaging Plant Conveyor and -Beverage Star Wheels.
