TIVAR® 1000 (UHMW)


TIVAR 1000 sets the standard for engineered polymers with a unique combination of wear and corrosion resistance, low friction surface and impact strength.

TIVAR 1000 is resistant to chemical attack and moisture absorption, and retains key physical properties to -30° C.

An excellent general-purpose material, TIVAR 1000 (natural) is a cost-effective solution for food handling problems, and meets FDA, USDA and 3-A Dairy guidelines for food processing and handling. Quadrant also offers custom colors compounded with FDA/USDA approved pigments, which meet FDA and USDA guidelines for food processing and handling. Whether your business is grain, pharmaceuticals, pizza dough or frozen poultry, TIVAR material will reliably move your materials and products.
