Product Announcement from Crown Plastics Co., Inc.

Polymers & Processes-Image

Crown Plastics manufactures the DuraSurf™ family of UHMW solutions and we have the distinction of being the only producer of UHMW in continuous rolls with stock gauges from 003″ up to 1/4″ and in any lengths (stock rolls are 100′ and 200′ coils).

Crown can also slit material to any width including Metric between 1/4″ and 24″ thereby eliminating waste and extra fabrication on the part of the customer.


The high molecular weight is what gives UHMW Polymers a unique combination of characteristics making it more suitable for many applications where lower molecular weight grades fail.


  • The highest abrasion resistance of any thermoplastic polymer
  • Outstanding impact strength even at very low temperatures
  • An excellent sliding material due to the low coefficient of friction
  • Self-lubricating (non-caking and sticking)
  • Sound dampening properties
  • Good chemical and stress cracking resistance
  • Easily machined
  • Electrical insulating material (static reduced available)
  • FDA and USDA approved
