TIVAR H.O.T. [Higher Operating Temperature] is formulated to maintain inherent UHMW-PE key properties over an extended service temperature range, in this way considerably increasing part life in low load bearing applications up to temperatures as high as 125 °C. Special additives reduce the oxidation rate of the material at higher temperatures thereby slowing down material degradation and extending wear-life. TIVAR H.O.T. also features a food contact compliant composition.
