TIVAR® 1000 UHMW sets the standard for engineered polymers with a unique combination of wear and corrosion resistance, low friction surface and impact strength. TIVAR® 1000 is resistant to chemical attack and moisture absorption, and retains key physical properties to -30°C.

An excellent general-purpose material, TIVAR® 1000 (natural) is a cost-effective solution for food handling problems, and meets FDA, USDA and 3-A Dairy guidelines for food processing and handling. Quadrant EPP also offers custom colors compounded with FDA/USDA approved pigments, which meet FDA and USDA guidelines for food processing and handling. Whether your business is grain, pharmaceuticals, pizza dough or frozen poultry,TIVAR® materials will reliably move your materials and products.

From food processing to packaging, bulk material handling to pharmaceutical processing...TIVAR® can improve your business performance. If your process machinery has problems with noise, premature wear, stretched chains, unscheduled downtime or expensive replacements, TIVAR® solves those problems and your machinery runs longer and smoother.

TIVAR® formulations are recognized worldwide for their wear and corrosion resistance, low friction surface and impact strength. TIVAR® can outperform stainless steel, yet it weighs only 1/8 as much. It can also handle wide temperature ranges making it ideal for use on freezing lines or on lines with intermittent temperatures up to 212oF (100oC). From intricate wear components to large-scale installations, a TIVAR® product can fit the application.
