Ultra High Molecular Weight PolyEthylene (UHMWPE) fiber
The world's strongest fiber. A superstrong polyethylene fiber that offers maximum strength combined with minimum weight. It is up to 15 times stronger than quality steel and up to 40% stronger than aramid fibers, both on weight for weight basis. It floats on water and is extremely durable and resistant to moisture, UV light and chemicals. UHMWPE is an important component in ropes, cables and nets in the fishing, shipping and offshore industries. It is also used in fine yarns for applications in sporting goods and the medical sector. In addition, UHMWPE is also used in bullet resistant armor and clothing for police and military personnel.
Spectra fiber provides super-fine, super-strong and ultra-lightweight fibers for body armor, aerospace and high-performance sporting goods applications.
Spectra is stronger and lighter than most commercial high-modulus fiber and has one of the highest strength to weight ratios of any manmade fiber.
Spectra fibers high tenacity makes it pound-for-pound 10 times stronger than steel, more durable than polyester and gives it a specific strength that is 40 percent greater than aramid fiber.
