      What is UHMW?

      What does UHMW stand for?

      UHMW-PE stands for Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polythene. 

      UHMW vs HMW?

      UHMW has more than 10x the molecular weight than it's little brother HMW (some might call it ARMW). This is what gives UHMW it's superior impact strength, abrasion resistance, stress/crack resistance, and more! This makes it very important to prioritize material type/authenticity over material thickness.

       

      High Impact Strength

      - Absorbs impacts
      - Bounces back to original shape

      Extremely Quiet

      Significantly dampens impact noise

      Self Lubricating/High Abrasion Resistance

      - Easily slide over rocks and logs
      - Outwears carbon steel 10:1, great for sand

      Light-Weight

      - Lighter than aluminum
      - Very similar weight to HDPE
      (Factory/OEM material)

      Genuine UHMW

      We only supply genuine American made UHMW-PE.

      We believe some products pose as UHMW based but are not made from UHMW. Some material descriptions that we believe you should be aware of are:

      • "Proprietary blend of UHMW" (most likely HDPE or HMW)
      • HMW (less than 10x the molecular weight of UHMW)
      • ARMW (most likely HMW)

      Why we don't use colored UHMW

      UHMW colors are very limited and primarily used for utility applications, not cosmetic applications. This means that color shades can have significant variations from sheet-to-sheet and will not be matched to a specific Pantone (color matching system). If you have seen cool colored plastics, they are most likely not UHMW because of the inability to color match.

      Factory Skids Don't Cut it



      Limited Coverage

      Most Factory/OEM skids
      provide minimal protection

      Too Thin or Too Thick

      - 1/8th easily breaks
      - 1/2 inch adds unnecessary weight

      Weak Plastic

      Easily Cracks, Punctures, or Breaks

      Too Many Holes

      Needless holes add snag points

      Unleash Your Machine

      Don't just take our word for it!
