Fine-particle/ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene
- Basic information
- Details of Characteristics
- Details of Applications
MIPELON™ is ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene in the form of fine powder developed by Mitsui Chemicals. While the average particle size of conventional ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene powder is 150 to 200 μm, MIPELON™ can be successfully reduced to fine particles having an average particle size of 25 to 30 μm with our special polymerization technique, and retaining its high molecular weight.
The addition of MIPELON™ to various resins, rubber, greases, and coating materials results in improved self-lubrication, abrasion resistance and chemical resistance because of the characteristics of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene. Good dispersion property of MIPELON™ results in exceptional mechanical properties.
