What is TIVAR used for?

What is TIVAR used for?

TIVAR® Oil Filled uses oil-filled polymers to achieve an enhanced coefficient of friction. It often is used for applications requiring higher-pressure velocity values, such as sprockets and conveyor components. TIVAR® Oil Filled also meets FDA guidelines for food processing and handling applications.

Who manufactures Tivar?

Alro Plastics – TIVAR® 1000 UHMW – The standard for engineered polymers.

What is Tivar eco plate?

UHMW TIVAR® ECO is plastic material suitable for machinery components, wear plates and guides. Depending on the application, UHMW ECO has an overall lower mechanical strength (90%) than the virgin TIVAR® 1000. This grade, partially composed of reprocessed PE-UHMW material can be machined easily.

What is Tivar 88?

Tivar® 88 is a premium lining material for bulk handling. Tivar® 88 is noted for its performance in promoting bulk solids flow of cohesive or non-free flowing materials due to its low surface friction.

Is UHMW FDA approved?

Yes, UHMW-PE is both FDA and USDA approved for use in food processing and medical applications.

What plastic is similar to Delrin?

Here’s the main takeaway: While Delrin does have some distinguishing properties, acetal plastics share enough in common that they are often interchangeable based on budget and other project-specific characteristics.

How good is Delrin?

Delrin plastic works as an excellent replacement for metal because of its high-tensile strength, low-friction and high-wear resistance, creep and warp resistance, and overall durability and toughness.

How do you cut Tivar?

  1. TIVAR can be efficiently machined using conventional machine tools and woodworking machinery.
  2. For circular sawing, course tooth carbide-tipped blades give the best results.
  3. Use high-speed steel tool bits with 10 front and side clearance and 15-30 rake.
