Our green PE-HD-UHMW sheets made from reclaimed materials are available in our online shop in thicknesses from 10mm to 80mm and a standard format of 2000mm long and 1000mm wide. The solid sheets consist entirely of recycled material, which is milled according to type and pressed into new sheets. The recycled PE-UHMW panels are fully dyed green to ensure that both cut edges and surfaces are the same green colour. The PE-UHMW recycled sheets are also exclusively solid plastic sheets made of solid core material without a foamed core made of polyethylene and are manufactured in Germany. The surfaces of the green PE-UHMW recycled sheets are smooth and are delivered without a protective film.
NOTE: Polyethylene, like our PE-UHMW recycled sheets in green, is an engineering plastic, so we do not recommend using it for optical purposes.
Green PE-HD-UHMW sheets made from reclaimed material are manufactured from purely recycled PE-UHMW. High-density ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene has very long molecular chains with an average molecular weight of more than 9 million g/mol. This means that plastic sheets made of recycled green PE-UHMW, or PE-1000 as it is often called, are also characterised by a very long service life and are very strong under permanent dynamic stress. The higher surface hardness compared to PE-UHMW sheets made from virgin material contributes to a higher impact and shock resistance, which also has an effect on the service life of PE-UHMW sheets made from recycled material.
PE-UHMW made from recycled material is an excellent and inexpensive alternative to PE-UHMW made from virgin material, because the recycled sheets are also suitable for areas of application in which the plastics are subject to the highest dynamic loads. The very high molecular density of the ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene in green results in an extremely low coefficient of sliding friction. This is particularly noticeable in the very good sliding properties, increased wear and abrasion resistance and the very long service life of the green PE-UHMW sheets made of regenerated material.
Plastic sheets made from recycled PE-UHMW can also be used at very low temperatures and, like PE-UHMW made from virgin material, have good impact strength at low temperatures. However, the temperature application range does not extend quite so far down, so that the regenerates can be used at temperatures between -80°C and +80°C.
The excellent resistance to chemicals also allows PE-UHMW regenerates to be in permanent contact with most acids, alkalis or organic solvents. In addition, the recycled sheets are also considered water-resistant, as they absorb almost no moisture, which is an important property especially with regard to chemicals that react with water. Another advantage of the very high chemical resistance is the very easy cleaning of the surfaces. This is particularly exploited in vehicle construction for superstructures and linings for special vehicles.
In contrast to the green PE-UHMW sheets made from virgin material, the PE-UHMW sheets made from recycled material do not comply with food regulations and are not considered physiologically safe according to BfR. Recycled PE-1000 sheets may therefore not be used in the food processing industry in contact with food.
The main differences between the green recycled PE-UHMW sheets and the sheets made from virgin material are not only the significantly lower price for the reclaimed sheets but also the harder surface. While the reclaimed material has a surface hardness (shore hardness) of 65, the PE-UHMW (PE-1000) sheets made from virgin material only have a shore hardness of 60, which ultimately also affects the impact and shock resistance of the plastic sheets. However, the PE-UHMW sheets made from recycled material have a significantly reduced temperature range and the lowest temperature of the recycled sheets is only -80°C, instead of -260°C for the sheets made from virgin material. In addition, the plastic sheets made from PE-UHMW regenerates are not food-safe. This is due to possible impurities in the ground material. Although the plastics are collected by type and ground separately, it can never be 100% ruled out that the ground material does not contain foreign plastics, even with the greatest care. Under certain circumstances, these can also have a slight effect on the surface appearance.
Other thicknesses or sheet formats of PE-UHMW (PE-1000) regenerated sheets in green are available on request.
Our standard green PE-UHMW recycled sheets in a size of 2000mmx1000mm, have a sufficient size for most applications and can easily be cut to smaller sizes. However, should you require larger sheets for your application, we are quite capable of supplying you with the inexpensive recycled sheets in a size of 3000mmx1250mm on request. Other thicknesses, as well as blanks in the sizes you require, are also available on request. Simply send us a detailed email with all the details of the thicknesses, dimensions and quantities you require and our friendly sales staff will deal with your request as quickly as possible.
We manufacture your milled parts from our green PE-UHMW regrind in from prototype to large-scale production
For machine parts according to your design drawing, whether as a prototype or manufactured in series, we are at your disposal with our milling service, thanks to the most modern CNC milling centres. All information on our milling service can be found here.
Recycled sheets made from green PE-UHMW can be processed just as well as PE-UHMW sheets made from virgin material. In order to cut our standard sheets with dimensions of 2000mmx1000mm into the size required for the application, a wide variety of processing methods are conceivable, such as punching, sawing, milling, CO2 lasering or water jet cutting. In addition, PE-UHMW can be turned or drilled without any problems. Riveting or screwing PE-UHMW are simple methods to connect the plastic sheets to themselves or to other materials.
Like our plastic sheets made of PE-UHMW (PE-1000) virgin material, PE-UHMW made of recycled material is not suitable for thermoforming and can therefore neither be thermoformed nor deep-drawn. Only cold forming is a feasible method for producing moulded parts from the ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene regrind.
Polyethylene belongs to the polyolefines which all have a very good resistance to chemicals and organic solvents, of which most conventional plastic adhesives are made. For this reason, our PE-UHMW regrind cannot be easily glued. With our special PE adhesive S-Polybond PEprofi, which was developed for bonding polyethylene plastics, bonding of our green recycled sheets made of PE-UHMW is however possible. However, due to the high chemical resistance, printing as well as painting PE is just as unfeasible as applying a digital print on foil or labelling with self-adhesive foil.
PE-UHMW can in principle be welded. This also applies to the green plastic sheets made from recycled PE-UHMW, but this is hardly ever used in practice, as the ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene is used more for its wear resistance and long service life for machine parts made from one piece.
NOTE: As an engineering plastic, our PE-UHMW recycling sheets are only suitable for optical purposes to a limited extent and are supplied without a protective film.
