Description

UTEC® is a key ingredient in a variety of consumer and recreational equipment markets. Its low coefficient of friction, high impact strength, and high abrasion-resistance over broad temperature ranges provide superior properties versus other engineering polymers. Processed by compression molding and ram extrusion, it is used in synthetic ice rinks, skis, snowboards, snow machine, mountain bike parts, wakeboards, shovels, outdoor playground equipment, and power and sail boat parts.
