UHMWPE Pressed & Planned (Polystone P7000 range, Matrox)

Supplier: Dotmar Engineering Plastics

Pressed and Planned UHMWPE sheet offers significant advantages over a standard pressed UHMWPE sheet.

Price Guide: POA

The main characteristics of pressed and planned UHMWPE is its uniform tolerance of -0/+4mm up to a thickness of 200mm. Once the sheet has been allowed to coolfollowing the pressing process, it is then planned to ensure that the correct thickness and tolerance is achieved depending on the size selected. A planned flat sheet with a small tolerance has less stress built up in the sheet, will not curl when machined correctly and has lower friction properties for sliding parts. Planning the UHMWPE sheet also allows theinternal stress to be mostly removed providing a more stable material to work with.

Pressed and Planned UHMWPE sheetcan be identified by the small arc type planning marks on both sides of the sheet as shownin the picture above. It is due to this planning process that Pressed and Planned UHMWPE sheet is often slightly more expensive than other unplanned grades.
