- Not self-extinguishing
TIVAR® is the brand name of Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products for its extensive range of virgin, partially reprocessed, colored or modified Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene stock shapes, manufactured by compression moulding or extrusion.
Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products focuses on innovation by modification of TIVAR 1000 standard materials in order to meet specific market requirements.
TIVAR 1000 exhibits a very well balanced property profile. It combines a very good wear and abrasion resistance with an outstanding impact strength, even at temperatures below -200°C.
TIVAR 1000 natural and TIVAR 1000 green 3010 (plates) are available as "Food Grades".
TIVAR® 1000 antistatic
By incorporating an effective carbon black grade, TIVAR 1000 antistatic offers the electrostatic dissipative properties often required for PE-UHMW components operating at high line speeds and conveying rates, maintaining the inherent key characteristics of PE-UHMW.
TIVAR 1000 antistatic (plates) is available as a "Food Grade".
This grade, partially composed of reprocessed PE-UHMW material, has an overall lower property level than the virgin TIVAR 1000 and a lower cost. Compared with virgin PE 500, however, it has a much better impact strength and wear resistance. Our TIVAR ECO grade shows a favorable price-performance ratio for applications in many kinds of industries with less demanding requirements.
In less demanding applications with respect to wear and impact resistance, PE 500 may present an economical alternative to the TIVAR® standard grades.
It is a versatile polyethylene grade used mainly in the food industry (meat and fish processing) but is also employed in all kinds of mechanical, chemical and electrical applications.
PE 500 natural and PE 500 blue 7020 (plates) are available as "Food Grades".
Increased safety in public & private pools
Quadrant‘s pool gratings & accessories are manufactured from HI·DEN PE 500 (HMW-PE), an extremely tough polymer. Compared to other plastic materials traditionally used in pool and leisure applications there are some advantages that make HI·DEN PE 500 the material of choice ... Click here for more information.
