What is Oil filled UHMW?

Oiled filled UHMW is the material of choice for packaging, bottling, and food processing and handling applications requiring FDA and USDA compliance. This advanced product enhances the dynamic coefficient of friction by adding oil filled polymers which helps to lubricate mating surfaces.

What is TIVAR 1000?

TIVAR 1000 sets the standard for engineered polymers with a unique combination of wear and corrosion resistance, low friction surface and impact strength. TIVAR 1000 is resistant to chemical attack and moisture absorption, and retains key physical properties to -200°C.

What is TIVAR material?

TIVAR® Ceram P is composed of virgin polymer and premium additives, making it a shatter-resistant alternative to ceramics and is noted for its dimensional stability. It is suited for high-speed, high-load, and sliding-abrasion applications and can outwear AR steel, virgin UHMW, and other materials.


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 kind of material is Tivar 1000 UHMW?

It is odorless, tasteless, and nontoxic. TIVAR®1000 UHMW is an excellent general purpose wear material that meets FDA, USDA, & 3-A Dairy guidelines for pharmaceutical processing and food contact applications. Standard colors are Natural (White) and Black, custom colors are also available.

What can Tivar oil filled be used for?

TIVAR® Oil Filled is an enhanced dynamic coefficient of friction formula, exuding an oil additive to lubricate mating surfaces. This is commonly used for applications requiring higher pressure velocity values. TIVAR Oil Filled meets FDA & USDA guidelines for food contact applications.

Why is Tivar 1000 used in food processing?

An excellent general-purpose material, TIVAR®­ 1000 (natural) is a cost-effective solution for food handling problems. Its natural formulation, but also many of its color variations, meet FDA, USDA and 3-A Dairy guidelines for food processing and handling.

Which is better for bearings UHMW or Tivar?

Also known as Tivar HPV. Often used in high- speed, high- precision, and high-impact applications, such as conveyor rollers and bearings, these rods stand up to scratches and scuffs better than our standard UHMW polyethylene rods. Also known as Tivar HPV.
