For products that require good abrasion resistance or extremely smooth surfaces, KRAIBON® can be combined with another plastic material, whereby the plastic can be integrated in a single process.
Ultra high molecular polyethylene (UHMW-PE) features extremely smooth and abrasion-proof surfaces. In conventional production processes, the surface of the UHMW-PE must be pretreated in a separate bonding process, for example by corona discharge.
By using KRAIBON®, the production of such surfaces is much easier. In addition, the integrated rubber improves the impact strength and vibration damping properties of the product.
