New and Improved King Hy-Pact®
UHMW has been an industry standard for abrasion resistance for many years. However, UHMW is expensive and physical properties diminish over time when exposed to UV. One manufacturer has developed a product called King Hy-Pact®, the super tough industrial polymer sheet that is environmentally stabilized with excellent physical properties. It is the product of a proprietary process called K-Stran™, the most advanced manufacturing process of quality sheets with tight tolerances and custom widths up to 60”. Tests have shown after 2,000 hours of UV exposure, King Hy-Pact® outperforms both UV stabilized HDPE and UHMW with superior toughness in wear resistance, flexibility and high-impact strength. King Hy-Pact® is the smart choice for many high abuse applications requiring superior properties, outstanding flatness and a smooth surface while providing significant cost savings compared to UHMW. Applications include, but are not limited to food processing chutes, star wheels, fabricated parts, snowplow blades and dock fenders.
King Hy-Pact® is UV stabilized and FDA approved. It comes standard in a standard sheet size of 48″ x 120″ with gauges as thin as 1/8” thick up to 1” thick.
Expansion and Contraction
Distributors and installers should be aware that when polymer sheets are attached with mechanical fasteners, space must be allowed around fasteners for the product to expand and contract during temperature changes. Please refer to the CNC Fabrication page for brochures, videos and guides.
