There are many cases in which UHMW-PE is specified for installations
where its ultimate abrasion and impact resistance are not necessary,
that is where King Hy-Pact VHMW-PE comes in.

abrasion and the impact-resistance of UHMW was not necessary. In many cases, the
customer’s only alternative was to use standard High-Density Polyethylene, which lacks the
durability to complement UHMW in most applications. So the King Plastic team created
King Hy-Pact® VH (very high molecular polyethylene), a unique product designed to be a
perfect compliment to UHMW and to bridge the wide performance gap between
HDPE and UHMW.
When used properly, King Hy-Pact® VH allows distributors and manufacturers to reduce
cost while suffering no performance loss. Naturally good design practices dictate that new
applications should always be tested before full-scale operations begin.
