MIPELON™ Fine Particle Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Powder (UHMWPE Powder)

MIPELON™ is a very fine particle, ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene powder with a diameter range of 10µm - 30µm. More spherical particles of MIPELON contribute to enhance the lubricity as an additive for compounding of rubbers and engineering plastics as well as work as a key-element for coatings. Additionally, MIPELON is environmentally-friendly because it consists of just carbon and hydrogen without any halogenated materials. MIPELON brings revolutionary new solutions to the conventional fine powder additives market.

When added to various rubbers and resins such as polyacetal or nylon, the material provides:

  • Improved lubrication
  • Enhanced abrasion resistance
  • Better impact strength and chemical resistance

When mixed with fillers and pigments, this UHMWPE powder's good dispersion properties results in exceptional mechanical properties.

The benefits of MIPELON UHMWPE powder specific applications include:

  • In coating materials: Improved lubrication and abrasion resistance
  • In greases and lubricants: Improved lubrication and matte finish
  • In rubber: Improved lubrication, abrasion resistance and chemical resistance
  • In plastics: Improved lubrication and abrasion resistance

The inclusion of MIPELON yields products with superior heat and water resistance. It is also used in filtration applications due to its small particle size.
