Data Sheet

TIVAR® HPV Food Grade UHMW-PE is a premium plastic material tailored for the unique demands of conveyor systems in food processing and other industries. This high-performance material is engineered to withstand the rigors of high-speed, high-temperature, and high-load production environments, as well as exposure to aggressive cleaning agents.

  • SPECIALIZED FOR CONVEYORS: TIVAR® HPV Food Grade UHMW-PE is designed to optimize conveyor system performance where friction and wear are prevalent.
  • SUPERIOR WEAR RESISTANCE: Exhibits exceptionally low wear rates for both conveyor belts and slide plates, extending the life of conveyor components.
  • REDUCED COEFFICIENT OF FRICTION: Achieves an 80% reduction in COF compared to POM-C, enhancing sliding behavior under extreme conditions.
  • HIGH LIMITING PRESSURE VELOCITY: Offers 18-35% higher LPV values than competing dry lubricant materials, suitable for high-load applications.
  • FDA COMPLIANT: Ensures safety and compliance for food contact applications, ideal for the food processing industry.
  • NOISE REDUCTION: Contributes to a quieter operating environment due to its built-in dry lubricant and material properties.
  • BUILT-IN DRY LUBRICANT: Facilitates improved performance without the need for additional lubrication, reducing maintenance and downtime.

With its superior wear and abrasion resistance, TIVAR® HPV significantly reduces the wear of both belts and slide plates, thereby minimizing maintenance and replacement costs. Its exceptionally low coefficient of friction, reduced by 80% compared to POM-C, ensures smoother operation and improved sliding behavior, critical in fast-paced production settings.

TIVAR® HPV's built-in dry lubricant not only enhances its performance but also contributes to noise reduction, creating a more comfortable and efficient working environment. The high limiting pressure velocity (LPV) of this material makes it a robust choice for applications where other materials might fail under pressure. FDA compliance is a key feature of TIVAR® HPV Food Grade UHMW-PE, making it safe for direct contact with food products. This compliance assures that the material meets stringent health and safety standards required in food processing operations.
