Slideways offers wear strips and wear shoes for wastewater treatment applications. The typical material is Black Reprocessed UHMW-PE.

We also have the ability to machine custom plastic sprockets out of a variety of UHMW-PE materials to go along with our plastic Drag/Pintle chain.

Benefits of UHMW-PE for Wastewater Components:

  • Resits 85% sulfuric acid and concentrated sodium hydroxide
  • Low coefficient of friction and weight
  • Abrasion resistance 5X that of metal
  • Reduces power needed in a drive system by up to 15%



Unusual shape? Complex design? Tough material requirements? No matter the case, we can confidently produce a part that suits your application best.
