UHMW is a type of thermoplastic material with high strength-to-weight ratio, excellent abrasion resistance, low friction coefficient, and impact resistance. Its strength and ability to resist wear and tear can, in some cases, outperform traditional steel components.
Fully recyclable, partly made from recycled plastic waste.
Not dishwasher safe, hand wash only.
• Low friction coefficient

• Hip bearing
• Exercise wobble board
UHMW has a low friction coefficient, so gears produced with this material will experience reduced wear on their teeth, resulting in smoother and quieter operation. It also lasts longer than other materials, so won’t need to be replaced as frequently. Its light weight makes it easy to handle during installation and maintenance.
UHMW is an excellent material for manufacturing shin guards and other protective gear due to its high strength-to-weight ratio, excellent abrasion resistance, and low coefficient of friction. Its ability to withstand heavy impact and wear makes it an ideal choice for protective gear, providing extra protection against collisions and kicks.
UHMW's high strength-to-weight ratio, excellent abrasion resistance, and impact resistance make it an ideal material for dock bumpers. This ensures that they can withstand heavy use and provide long-lasting protection for docks and other structures. UHMW is also recommended because it is chemical and corrosion resistant, making it impervious to saltwater and other corrosive substances.
UHMW is an excellent material for manufacturing hip bearings due to its high wear resistance and low coefficient of friction. It is also biocompatible and has a low rate of wear debris generation, making it an ideal material for medical implants. Its high strength-to-weight ratio and impact resistance allow it to withstand heavy use and provide long-lasting support.
Nothing will impact your 3D printing results like the kind of filament you use. Good filament is highly consistent in diameter, is wound evenly onto the spool with just the right amount of tension, and will not tangle when being unwound. 3D Universe offers a wide range of high-quality filaments to choose from. We provide a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all filament we sell. If you have any problems, just send back the unused portion of the spool for a full refund. Check out our filament collection...
