Specific properties

Bemalon 1000 ASTL is a PE-UHMW material with extremely high molecular weight. This material is specially developed for demanding, abrasive industrial applications. The added additives give the material high resistance to UV radiation and have static dissipative properties.

The material has also been tested in accordance with the ATEX directive 2014/347 / EU. and complies with EU 1935/2004, EU 10/2011 and GMP EU 2023/2006. The material otherwise has the same properties as Bemalon 1000 ASTL.
