  • Corrosion resistant
  • Excellent noise abatement
  • Excellent impact strength
  • Maintains key physical properties to -30°C

TIVAR 1000

meets FDA, USDA and 3-A Dairy Sanitation guidelines for food processing and handling, making it the material of choice for tough food handling problems. Because TIVAR 1000 is resistant to chemical attack, it stands up to repeated wash downs with aggressive chlorine solutions, common in the food processing industry, and so damaging to other polymer materials. Available in a broad array of custom colors on a made to order basis.

TIVAR Recycled

is a blend of virgin and reclaimed TIVAR that maintains an acceptable combination of TIVAR properties for less-demanding, non-FDA applications.

TIVAR UV Resistant

provides enhanced stability for outdoor applications. TIVAR UV Resistant retains all the key properties of TIVAR 1000 and prevents premature degradation of the material under continuous UV exposure. It is ideal for agricultural, recreation and transportation applications. Parts made from TIVAR UV Resistant are self-lubricating and will not corrode or freeze, providing extended part life and improved performance.

ARMOR-X (Impact Modified UHMW-PE)

is an ideal material for protecting equipment and critical surface. Its unique UHMW formation offers good impact resistance and keeps valuable parts safe. Armor-X has a distinct Proknob finish available to keep parts in place and add cushioning.

TIVAR ESd (Electro Static Dissipative)

protects against electrical charge build-up on wear surfaces. TIVAR ESd is the ideal material to use when potentially volatile conditions exist in grain handling or munitions plants. It also protects expensive robotic and conveyor equipment that is sensitive to electrical charge build-up. (105 to 109)

TIVAR EC (Electrically Conductive)

provides more protection from the electrical charge build-up by offering greater conductivity, quickly moving the charge away from the application environment. (< 105)

TIVAR DrySlide

is modified with a dry lubricant to have the lowest coefficient of friction of all TIVAR products. The enhanced wear resistance and electro static dissipative properties make TIVAR DrySlide a proven performer in dusty, dirty environments. It moves parcels and packages quickly even in high humidity. TIVAR DrySlide is inherenetly UV stabilized and performs well in any outdoor application. (105 to 109)

TIVAR CleantStat

is a unique ESD (Electro Static Dissipative) material that still meets FDA/USDA guidelines and is 3-A Dairy Sanitation compliant for food processing and handling applications where static charge build-up is a problem. TIVAR CleanStat reduces fine build-up in pan conveyors and feeders, reducing clean outs and downtime. (107 to 1010)

TIVAR Oil Filled

provides lower coefficient of friction by introducing a wet lubricant that exudes from the material, adds lubrication to mating parts and still meets FDA/USDA guidelines for food processing and handling applications. With TIVAR Oil Filled, conveyors operate more effectively without the added expense of unnecessary lubricant delivery systems.


is a unique combination of virgin material and premium additives which makes it the material of choice for severe sliding abrasion applications. Its higher tensile strength and wear resistance increase part life and reduce maintenance downtime.

TIVAR H.O.T. (Higher Operating Temperature)

excels in a variety of industrial manufacturing environments where temperatures reach up to 275&#176;F. TIVAR H.O.T. reduces oxidation rate at higher temperatures, slows degradation and extends wear-life in chemical, elevated temperature and thermo-cycling environments. TIVAR H.O.T. meets FDA/USDA guidelines and is 3-A Dairy Sanitation compliant, making  it the ideal, longer life material for wear parts in dairy, bakery, poultry/meat and other food processing industries where higher temperatures or frequent chemical wash downs shorten part life.


has achieved worldwide recognition as the premier lining material for all bulk material handling problems. Excellent abrasion and chemical resistance help make TIVAR 88 the longest wearing liner available. The low coefficient of friction promotes continuous, reliable flow of the stickiest bulk material eliminating arching, ratholing and erratic material flow. TIVAR 88 ESD/UV is available if static build-up is a problem or the liner is subjected to continuous sunlight.

TIVAR 88-2

can be fabricated and welded to solve complicated chute or hopper lining problems. SystemTIVAR Engineering can design the right solution for your individual situation. TIVAR 88-2 is also available in a ESD/UV Resistant formulation.

TIVAR 88 W/BurnGuard

was designed for applications where TIVAR 88 liners might be exposed to combustion. TIVAR 88 w/BurnGuard is designed to self-extinguish when the source of combustion is removed and the material experiences no further impact. TIVAR 88 w/BurnGuard meets MSHA 1C-112/1 for underground mining and has a UL94 V-0 Flammability Rating.
