Redco™ SYNSTEEL is a “pulp mill friendly” UHMW/PE engineered specifically for the pulp and paper industry.
Redco™ SYNSTEEL was developed as a result of concerns with plastic contamination in the chip supply. Our
research of the pulp and paper industry found the criteria for determining a “pulp mill friendly” material
to vary from mill to mill. However, the industry generally agreed that any one, or all, of the following are
necessary in the determination of a “pulp mill friendly” material.
Redco™ Synsteel has twice the compressive strength of UHMW, much improved dimensional stability, and an
increased abrasion resistance. This has all combined to produce an unprecedented wear-resistant
material. In application, we have found Redco™ Synsteel to out-perform UHMW 3 to 1, and in some instances
by as much as 20 to 1. The forest industry can now look to Redco™ SYNSTEEL to provide all the advantages of
UHMW, and more, without the concern of plastic contamination.
