Recycled UHMWPE (Regen)

Supplier: Dotmar Engineering Plastics

Recycled UHMWPE often referred to as Regen is the lowest grade of UHMWPE available.

Price Guide: POA

Regen has a molecular weight of 4 million which has a significant negativeimpact on its sliding and abrasion performance. This material is generally an unplanned and poor quality UHMWPE sheet.Regen is not suitable for low friction sliding applications or food contact but is generally used in areas that do not require the unique properties of Pressed and Planned UHMWPE such as ship fenders and ship rubbing strips.

Regen is easily identifiable by the multiple spec like colours shown within the sheet as shown in the pictureabove. If you suspect that the sheet that you are using is a Regen grade and not Pressed and Planned virgin grade, please contact the Dotmar sales staff in your region to assist with correct selection.
