For over 40 years, UHMWPE has been regarded as the primary bearing material for orthopaedic applications. Its high abrasion resistance and toughness means that it is an exceptionally attractive solution to the complexities of wear.

Today, Orthoplastics are the World’s leading producers of UHMWPE and manufacture UHMWPE from Celanese GUR® 1020, 1050 and 1020-E polymer via two distinct processes: ram extrusion, which produces a rod shaped product and compression moulding, which produces a large sheet of product.
