ELS – use in potentially explosive atmospheres – Very good sliding-friction and abrasion values – Suitable for use in food and beverage applications

The problem of static discharge is very familiar in applications involving the transportation of critical goods. Some products acquire a static charge due to friction, and this leads to electrical discharges onto the goods being transported. Products then adhere to each other or dust sticks to them. It is here that our product “GEHR UHMWPE ELS” provides an optimal solution. Thanks to its antistatic finish, static charges are avoided. GEHR UHMWPE ELS can also be used unrestrictedly in potentially explosive atmospheres. It exhibits very good sliding-friction and abrasion values. In addition, thanks to its special recipe, the product offers a very fine surface that turns glossy after machining. The advantage here is that no traces whatsoever of scratches and abrasion are caused on the goods being transported.

GEHR UHMWPE ELS is already being used extensively in a huge range of applications for transporting electronics. But excellent results are also being achieved where high friction forces are entailed by the design involved, such as belt conveyors

GEHR UHMWPE ELS can be used in contact with foods and beverages. It conforms to EU Directives 2002/72/EG + 1935/2004/EC + 2023/2006/EC.
