Description

Murdotec® 500 coloured, our HMW-PE, is particularly suited for use in the food sector. This material has a molecular weight of around 500,000 g/mol and is characterised by extremely good cut resistance at the same time as having good slide properties. This plastic also has high wear resistance.

Manufactured using state-of-the-art presses, this material ensures top quality, and is approved by the EU and FDA.

This material is quickly available in lots of RAL colours.


Some of the key characteristics are:

  • Good anti-adhesion properties
  • Good resistance to chemicals
  • Good cut resistance
  • Good weldability
  • Good machinability
  • Electrically isolating

    sheet group 2.1
