UHMW PE - Trelleborg Marine and Infrastructure

UHMW PE and Fender Panels - Hong Kong


Trelleborg's FQ1000 ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW-PE) is the first choice material for facing steel fender panels and other heavy duty applications. It combines very low friction with excellent impact strength and a wear resistance much better than steel. 

Most popular is FQ1000-DS which is 'double-sintered' and work-hardened for extra durability. The standard color is black, but if other colors are needed then FQ1000-V 'virgin' grade also comes in yellow, white, grey, blue, green and red. FQ1000 UHMW-PE materials are compounded to resist ozone and UV radiation. They do not degrade or rot and are easily recycled at the end of their useful service life.
