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.
