Tivar HOT - High Temperature UHMW

December 8, 2009

Tivar HOT is a unique UHMW grade that has a dramatically higher continuous operating temperature (275F) than standard UHMW. Tivar HOT still has excellent wear and abrasion resistance, doesn't absorb moisture, has excellent chemical resistance and meets FDA, USDA and 3A guidelines.

We have found this product to be excellent for higher temperature zones in food processing and packaging equipment but it has also proven to be a great material in down-hole oil drilling applications!

It's a pretty diverse material! If you need excellent abrasion resistance, low friction, self lube bearing material with all of the other attributes mentioned, consider Tivar HOT from TriStar

Our video (below) has some more information about Tivar Hot.
