TECAFINE PE500 natural

polyethylene pe 500

TECAFINE PE500 natural (PE HMW) is a high molecular weight polyethylene thermoplastic, offering increased impact strength and wear resistance compared to PE300 (HDPE). The characteristic profile includes excellent chemical resistance, high strength, low moisture absorption and good sliding and non-stick properties. With FDA and (EU) No. 10/2011 approvals, this material is physiologically safe for use in contact with food. Ensinger also offers PE500 in black.
