Novoplast Schlauchtechnik: UHMWPE-tube celebrates market breakthrough!

In close cooperation with the granulate manufacturer Dreyplas, the specialist for medical technology tubing from Halberstadt has developed a patented production process for manufacturing tubing from Lubmer L5000 as continuous rolls.

Novoplast Schlauchtechnik has developed an ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene hose short (UHMWPE). With its mechanical product properties, the UHMWPE tube with the product name Master-Tube PE Ultra embodies a durable tube for demanding applications from the medical technology and industrial sectors. 

Some product advantages:

  • Superior mechanical properties, high tensile strength & Young's modulus.
  • Non-polar, anti-adhesive surface, low surface tension
  • Low coefficient of sliding friction
  • Low density
  • Ecologically sustainable plastic

Of particular interest is the fact that extrudates made from these thermoplastic-processable granules combine mechanical properties such as flexibility and impact strength at low temperatures down to -200 degrees Celsius, while at the same time the hoses produced in this way display high chemical resistance.

Certification of the UHMWPE-tube

Even more, the UHMWPE-tube named Master-Tube PE Ultra meets the regulatory requirements according to Reach, is food compliant according to EU 1935/2004 or EU 10/2011 and FDA compliant. 

Patented thermoplastic manufacturing process for tube, hose and profile extrusion

Together with the granulate manufacturer, Novoplast Schlauchtechnik has developed a process for thermoplastic processing in cooperation with the raw material manufacturer, which is now protected by a patent. Now, not only mechanical components can be produced, but also hoses as continuous goods. The next logical step was therefore to transfer this production technology to the medical technology sector.
