Formulated to maintain key performance properties in an extended temperature range, Tivar H.O.T. will excel in a variety of industrial manufacturing environments where temperatures range up to 275°F (nearly 100°F higher than competing UHMW-PE formulations).

Due to the material's ability to inhibit the oxidation process, Tivar H.O.T. applications demonstrate extended life in chemical, elevated temperature and thermo-cycling environments. The result is a material that lasts up to 10 times longer in higher temperature environments and has excellent wear, machinability and release characteristics. This material is FDA compliant.
