HMW vs UHMW: what is it and what is better for my application?
HMW stands for high molecular weight, while UHMW stands for ultra high molecular weight. What does that mean? We like to think of it like rebar in concrete. The more rebar you reinforce your concrete with, the stronger your slab will be. HMW has a molecular weight of 300,000 to 500,000 while UHMW ranges from 3 to 6 million. HMW still has a high wear resistance and has great flexibility. UHMW might cost more but it is much stronger, giving you better resistance to impact and temperature fluctuations and reduces friction even better than HMW.
Prairie Slide HMW: Commonly used for live bottom liners in agriculture that might see friction but light impact. It is a cost-effective way to reduce friction, help fight mud build up, and seal the edges of your trailer.
Durapro UHMW: Made from recycled material, virgin resin and 2% silicone impregnated makes it a great option for most dump trucks or high wear live bottom liners. Durapro liners are 1/3 the weight of aluminum and 1/8 the weight of steel, making it a must to help protect your original equipment with little weight gain. Due to the high-quality product, Durapro carries a 5-year warranty and is manufactured under ISO 9001 Certified Standards.
Quicksilver UHMW: Made from all virgin resin and 6% impregnated with silicone, Quicksilver has the industries best release and wear properties. Quicksilver handles any temperature allowing you to haul hot asphalt one day and aggregate the next. Impact strength tested to -100 degrees Fahrenheit without cracking or breaking. Quicksilver is also manufactured under ISO 9001 Certified Standards allowing us to offer a lifetime warranty.
