Redco™ HMW PE 500 or High Molecular Weight Polyethylene is used as a wear or abrasion resistant component on conveyors, chutes, troughs, tension bars and liners. Being lightly ‘softer’ than UHMW, HMW PE is often specified for cutting boards because it does not blunt the knives as quickly and is food approved.

Typical applications of High Molecular Weight Polyethylene 500 grade: for use with food contact particularly trap and preparation surfaces (food boards, butchers blocks, food machinery/production parts, dough scrapers, food board racking, catering display)

It is readily available in many colors and supplied as High Molecular Weight Polyethylene sheets, High Molecular Weight Polyethylene plastic parts precision engineered to your specifications, chopping boards and butchers block.
