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.

Learn more about the superior technical material advantages on the online information portal for the chemical industry here or visit the UHMWPE-tube website for Novoplast Schlauchtechnik's Master-Tube PE Ultra product here.

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. 

Patented thermoplastic manufacturing process for tube, hose and profile extrusion

Together with the granulate manufacturer, Novoplast Schlauchtechnik has developed a process for thermoplastic processing, 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.
