Tivar polyethylene is the brand name of Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products. Tivar is an extensive range of Virgin, partially reprocessed, coloured or modified Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW) stock shapes, manufactured by compression moulding or extrusion.
In less demanding applications with respect to wear and impact resistance, PE 500 grade polyethylene may present an economical alternative for the Tivar standard grades.
There are many variations of Tivar 1000 polyethylene that have been created to meet specific market requirements. Tivar proprietary Polyethylene grades offer improved sliding and wear properties, static dissipative characteristics, enhanced release properties or improved engineering characteristics.
Tivar 1000 is an engineered PE-UHMW with a molecular weight of approximately 5 to 10,5 million g/mol. Tivar 1000 is available as compression moulded or ram extruded semi-finished shape in various colours. Fabricated parts and components can be machined out of semi-finished shapes.
Tivar 1000 Characteristics
The properties of PE-UHMW allow recycling back into a quality materials cycle. By adding higher quality reprocessed material it is possible to offer an attractive price-to-performance ratio for selected applications. Tivar 1000 with reprocessed content fulfills the requirements profile for a number of applications. Partially reprocessed PE-UHMW; much better impact strength and wear resistance compared with virgin PE 500 - economical grade.
Tivar 1000 R Characteristics
Anti-static properties of PE-UHMW are often required with high line speeds and conveying rates. Tivar 1000 anti-static meets these requirements. Anti-static properties are achieved by incorporating efficient carbon black types.
Tivar 1000 ESD Characteristics
PE 500 is used in the food industry and the leisure industry, but is not recommended where abrasion resistance is required.
PE 300 is used in tank building and container building, but is not recommended where abrasion resistance is required.
Tivar DrySlide is the material with the lowest coefficient of friction within the Tivar product family, Tivar DrySlide is an engineering polymer based on UHMW with built-in lubrication. The lubricant allows an extremely low coefficient of friction independent of loads being applied. In addition, Tivar DrySlide is provided as anti-static formulation.
Tivar DrySlide Characteristics
Tivar 1000 MoS² contains molybdenum disulphide. This solid lubricant reduces frictional resistance. The coefficient of friction decreases with dynamic load. Tivar 1000 MoS² is used in applications with higher loads and where dry running is required.
Tivar Tech Characteristics
Tivar Oil Filled is a PE-UHMW material with an oil based additive. This makes Tivar Oil Filled self-lubricating - additional lubrication is not required. The main features of this Tivar material is the significant noise reduction and reduction of required driving force.
Tivar Oil Filled Characteristics
Tivar Special DS is a PE-UHMW material designed for applications in the paper industry, it is wear optimised and ideal for high line speeds and abrasive environments in the paper industry.
Tivar DS Characteristics
Tivar Ceram P is a wear optimised PE-UHMW material with incorporated glass beads for use in demanding applications with higher loads.
Tivar Ceram P Characteristics
Tivar SuperPlus is a wear optimised, partially cross-linked PE-UHMW material for use in extremely demanding applications and environments.
Tivar SuperPlus Characteristics
Tivar H.O.T. (Higher Operating Temperature) was formulated to maintain key properties in an extended temperature range (80°C up to 135°C, depending on loads). Special additives enable it to inhibit the oxidation process, making Tivar H.O.T. a cost-efficient alternative to PTFE and polyamide.
Tivar H.O.T. Characteristics
Tivar CleanStat is a PE-UHMW material for use in food processing and pharmaceutical industries. Tivar CleanStat has anti-static properties and meets european food regulation.
Tivar CleanStat Characteristics
Tivar Burnguard is a flame retardant material based on PE-UHMW. It combines the key characteristics of Tivar 1000 with flame retardant properties.
Tivar Burnguard Characteristics
Tivar 1000 BOR is a PE-UHMW material modified with boron based additives used as shielding material in the nuclear industry.
