The ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) fiber is up to 15 times stronger than steel and up to 40% stronger than aramids (weight for weight basis) and floats on water

Ropes made of ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene fiber has the characteristics of high strength modulus, low density, abrasion resistance, aging resistance, seawater resistance and corrosion resistance

Compared to other synthetic fibers, including nylon, polyester and aramid, UHMWPE fibers have the highest strength-to-weight ratio, are less dense, are easy to spot when they fall into water, and can be retrieved before sinking or becoming entangled. 


Typical Technical Properties

1) After 1500 Sunshine hours, its remaining strength is more than 80%.

2) After 6 months in most chemicals (seawater, gas, etc.), its remaining strength is 100%.

3) The UHMWPE ropes remaining strength is 100% after 1000 times loaded relative test.

4) Its relative times until break of Abrasion proof are more than 110 to 103.

5) Its relative times until break of Winding proof are more than 110 to 103.

6) Its strength of annulation is 12 up to 18g/d. its 10 up to 15g/d for collusion.

7) Melting Point is around 135-145, Highly resistant to abrasion, cutting, tearing

8) Color is bright white and poor for dyeing.
