High molecular weight polyethylene is commonly abbreviated as HMWPE and also referred to as PE500.

HMWPE is food contact approved and offers excellent impact strength, wide temperature range (+80°C to -60°C), low coefficient of friction, and very low moisture absorption (<0.1%).

HMWPE is commonly used as wear parts and abrasion resistant components in the conveyor and materials handling industries. HMWPE is used in food preparation and chopping boards because its slightly softer than UHMWPE (PE1000) grade and better for the cutting requirements. Also, HMWPE offers a better consistent and durable cutting surface than HDPE.

HMWPE is available in a range of colours and thicknesses and comes in rod, sheet, and tube form.
