A new family of ultra-high-molecular-weight PE compounds from Techmer Lehvoss Compounds LLC, Clinton, Tenn., is melt processible, unlike typical resins of this type. The Luvotech line of UHMW-PE has been chemically tailored for extrusion or injection molding on standard equipment. Techmer says that Luvotech formulations have all the familiar physical properties of typical UHMW-PE, such as wear resistance, surface lubricity, and hardness. Luvotech UMMW-PE is available in custom colors, including deep tones and bright hues.
