What is UHMW?
UHMW stands for Ultra High Molecular Weight and is the plastic Factory UTV uses to create skid plates, a-arm guards, and rockslides for just about every major UTV model on the market.
During its manufacturing process, the molecules of this plastic are compacted as densely and close together as possible. UHMW is roughly 100 times denser than HMW, and exponentially denser than ABS or other common plastics.
The UHMW used by Factory UTV is partially made from Recycled UHMW materials, making the constancy more rigid and impact-absorbent than new plastic, allowing the perfect flexing capability needed to endure impacts. Our UHMW has a very low coefficient of friction, making it slippery in rough conditions, but it has the impact resistance and density to withstand some of the harshest environments you can throw at it.
