No. PVC is vinyl, UHMW is polyethylene or polypropylene processed for very
long molecular chains with much crosslinking. It has quite remarkable
resistance to abrasion and some self-lubricating properties--I don't know
what it does to a saw blade when you cut it but I do know that I had a blade
that was burning everything I cut--I was ready to send it out for
sharpening--and I cut a piece of UHMW with it and after that it was working
like new. I don't know whether it got some UHMW in the pores or whether the
UHMW gave it a good cleaning or both.
