What is Tivar 88?
Tivar® 88 is a premium lining material for bulk handling. Tivar® 88 is noted for its performance in promoting bulk solids flow of cohesive or non-free flowing materials due to its low surface friction.
Is Tivar 88 glass filled?
is a cross linked and glass filled UHMW-PE material that has been modified to enhanced wear resistance for applications where abrasion is a significant factor.
Is Tivar 88 FDA approved?
TIVAR® CleanStat is FDA approved and USDA compliant for use in food processing applications where static charge build-up is a problem.
What is Tivar hot?
Tivar HOT is a unique UHMW grade that has a dramatically higher continuous operating temperature (275F) than standard UHMW. Tivar HOT still has excellent wear and abrasion resistance, doesn’t absorb moisture, has excellent chemical resistance and meets FDA, USDA and 3A guidelines.
Is Tivar anti static?
TIVAR® CleanStat is a static-reduced product that meets FDA & USDA guidelines for food handling and pharmaceutical processing. TIVAR® CleanStat is weldable and will eliminate static build-up problems while exhibiting a longer-wearing, lower-coefficient of friction sliding surface than stainless steel.
Is UHMW FDA approved?
Yes, UHMW-PE is both FDA and USDA approved for use in food processing and medical applications.
What is Tivar UHMW?
About TIVAR ® UHMW TIVAR stands for Tough Inert Very Abrasion Resistant which are some of the key properties of UHMW. TIVAR UHMW is available in sheet, rod, tube, skived roles, custom profiles and machined parts.
What is blue UHMW?
UHMW-PE Blue is formulated for food, beverage and bottling applications offering the benefits of virgin UHMW in a highly visible blue color that is FDA compliant. UHMW-PE Blue has outstanding chemical resistance, a very low coefficient of friction, high impact strength and excellent abrasion resistance.
Can you laser cut Delrin?
Delrin® Overview Laser cutting Delrin® with a 10.6 micron wavelength CO2 laser produces clean cuts with smooth edges. Laser engraving Delrin® with a 10.6 micron wavelength CO2 laser can produce a high degree of detail and relief. A 1.06 micron wavelength Fiber laser can be used to laser mark Delrin® in certain cases.
How can you tell the difference between HDPE and UHMW?
UHMW and HDPE are made from ethylene monomers. They are both thermoplastic polymers. They both have an indistinguishable appearance. The main difference between UHMW and HDPE is that UHMW contains long polymer chains with a very high molecular weight, whereas HDPE has a high strength to density ratio.
Is Delrin HDPE?
While HDPE Sheet and Acetal Sheet look similar, they perform quite a bit differently. Acetal is commonly known as: Delrin Homopolymer Acetal, Tecaform AH,Ensital, Unital, Pomalux, Ultraform and many more. HDPE is also known as: Ultraethylux, Densetec, Polystone G, Fortiflex, Versadur, Hostalen, and many more.
