Fluoron’s Patented UHMW-PE sleeves are fabricated from the world’s toughest plastic and have significantly better abrasion
resistance than polyurethane, carbon steel, nylon, PTFE and other polymer coating products. The self-lubricating properties of UHMW-PE are comparable to those of PTFE in dynamic friction.
Fluoron’s UHMW-PE heat shrinkable sleeves outperform the following materials in abrasion Testing:
- 30X Abrasion Resistance over FEP
- 10X Abrasion Resistance over Carbon Steel
- 2X Abrasion Resistance over 6-6 Nylon
- 7X Abrasion Resistance over PTFE
