In line with our strict quality policy with regards to manufacturing and the final product, we only use selected raw materials from well-known manu facturers. Particle size, particle size distribution and molecular weight are constantly monitored by our incoming material inspection team. Our computer controlled press lines guarantee o ptimal heating-up, pressing and cooling down phases. Through exact compliance with the p rocessing parameters, Murdotec ensures the c onstant production of semi-finished products with a very low level of internal stress. Fully-automated mixing lines give us the opportunity to offer repeatable material types with clearly efined specific values. d Our UHMW-PE material lines, Murdotec® 1000 and Murdotec® 2000 as well as our HMW-PE Murdotec® 500 exceed the standards for semi-finished products as set out in DIN 16972/ISO 15527. That makes the difference.

Importantly the raw material for this quality material never leaves our cycle and has passed all of the quality assurance stations in circulation. We know exactly which quality is processed in our production. As with the original material, the pressing process is a crucial factor. Moulding cycles especially adapted to this type of material ensure the quality of the product. We pay attention to idle-times of the semi-finished products prior to further processing. This ensures that your semi-finished product from out of Murdo- tec® 1000 U achieves the optimal performance range whilst combining a very reasonable price-performance ratio.
