Materials
  • Most Superchute® sections are made of YELLOW High Molecular Weight Polyethylene

  • In hot weather the plastic will become a little softer
  • Bright yellow plastic (safety-minded color) shows off your company name plate
  • Many thicknesses available
  • UV treated
  • We build custom Superchute® sections using BLUE Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene if a high volume of abrasive material will be passed through the chute
  • UHMWPE is five times more abrasion resistant than the yellow plastic
  • Low temperature impact resistance: -70 ºC (-94 ºF)
  • Melting temperature: 137 ºC (280 ºF)
  • Max recommended working temperature: 80°C (180°F)
  • Many thicknesses available
  • UV treated
  • We build custom Superchute® sections using GREY Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene where extremely hot material will be passed through the chute
  • UHMWPE is five times more abrasion resistant than the yellow plastic
  • Low temperature impact resistance: -70 ºC (-94 ºF)
  • Melting temperature: 150 ºC (300 ºF)
  • Max recommended working temperature: 135°C (275°F)
