UHMWPE Properties

Within the medical sector, Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene, or UHMWPE, has often been referred to as the most suitable bearing material to use when producing orthopaedic implants, due to its range of beneficial properties. Its excellent resistance to wear and its core strength as a plastic material, appeals greatly to device manufacturers who serve the medical industry.

Orthoplastics have opted to develop its manufacturing methods for UHMWPE to provide device manufacturers with a highest grade of medical plastic that is available on today’s global market.
