A tribologically modified ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW-PE) polymer composition is disclosed. The UHMW-PE polymer composition is comprised of an UHMW-PE polymer and at least one tribological modifier. The tribological modifier may be comprised of a silicone powder, a silicone oil, an olefin oligomer, an ultrahigh molecular weight silicone, or any combination thereof. The composition and polymer article produced therefrom may exhibit improved tribological properties, such as a reduced coefficient of friction and low wear, when contacted against a counter-material in comparison to an unmodified UHMW-PE polymer composition.


Construction materials are described that contain polyoxymethylene fibers. The polyoxymethylene fibers are treated with a sizing composition that improves dispersibility. In addition to improving dispersibility, the sizing composition improves various physical properties of the resulting hardened structural material. The sizing composition, for instance, can increase impact resistance, flexural strength, compressive strength, and/or residual strength in comparison to an identical construction material containing polyoxymethylene fibers that are untreated.


Polymer particles containing a polyoxymethylene polymer for coating metallic substrates are described. The polymeric particles contain a polyoxymethylene polymer in combination with an adhesion promoter which may comprise an acid modified polyolefin and performance enhancing additives. The polyoxymethylene polymer and the adhesion promoter may also be combined with a thermoplastic elastomer and optionally a coupling agent. Also disclosed is a process where the polymeric particles are used to from a fluidized bed for coating metallic substrates. In one embodiment, after being coated with the polymer particles, the coated metal substrate is gas cooled followed by cooling the coated substrate in a bath containing an aqueous medium.

A two component polyoxymethylene based system is disclosed. The two component system is comprised of a first polymer layer and a second polymer layer. The first polymer layer is comprised of a polyoxymethylene polymer composition comprising a polyoxymethylene polymer and optionally a tribological modifier. The second polymer layer is comprised of a second polymer composition comprising a liquid crystalline polymer, a polyarylene sulfide polymer, or a combination thereof and at least one tribological modifier. The compositions provide polymer articles, such as conveyor components, with improved tribological properties.
