High Tenacity, High Modulus, Light Weight, Low Elongation, Bullet-Proof, Cut Resistant, UV Resistant, Abrasion Resistant.
Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE or sometimes shortened to UHMW), also known as high-modulus polyethylene (HMPE) or high-performance polyethylene (HPPE), is a subset of the thermoplastic polyethylene.
Yoon Networks (Shanghai) Co., Ltd is one of the largest suppliers of Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) FIBER around the World.
The UHMWPE Fiber made by us is of excellent characteristics such as high strength, high modulus, low density, abrasion and impact resistance, reagent durability, high hydrophobic, biocompatibility and anti-UV, etc. The product also shows good characteristics in resistance to (sea) water, moisture, mildew, fatigue durability and long flexing life, etc. There are several specifications of UHMWPE Fiber such as 400D, 500D, 800D, 1000D, 1200D, 1500D, 1600D, 2200D and 3000D. etc., and the mean tenacity is over 35g/den. Generally, it has many performances as below:
1. High Tenacity. Pound for pound 15 times stronger than high quality steel, and 1.4 times than Aramid fiber.
2. High Modulus. >1200g/D, higher than any other fibers except Carbon Fiber.
3. Low Specific Gravity. 0.97 g/cm3, lighter than water, one of the lightest synthetic fiber.
4. Low Elongation. 3% only. Do not shrink in water.
5. High resistance to sunlight and ultraviolet light.
6. Excellent resistance to chemicals. No reduce in most chemicals solvent.
7. Good abrasion resistance.
8. Excellent cut resistance.
9. Excellent vibration damping performance.
10. High energy absorption, low dielectric constant, low friction, impact resistance etc.
The Yoon Networks UHMWPE Fiber is widely used in:
--Ropes and Cordage (mooring, towing, tugging, Sling and etc.)
--National defense, Personal protective (armor, helmet, cut resistance glove)
--Dental floss and so on.
Ropes and cordages made with The Yoon Networks UHMWPE Fiber are used as mooring, tugging and towing ropes, offshore positioning ropes, yachting lines, commercial fishing lines, industry slings and etc.
The Yoon Networks UHMWPE Fiber is also widely used in industry and commercial fishing netting fields, including netting—trawl, aquaculture nets, safety nets used in the construction industry and cargo nets used in the transport/logistic sector. We have LY-35 series UHMWPE fiber, strength similar to Dyneema SK75 products.
The Yoon Networks UHMWPE Fiber can be incorporated in fabrics to meet special demands in a wide range area such as yacht sails, protective gloves, aprons, protective sportswear, industrial textiles and vegetable greenhouse.
UHMWPE UD made with The Yoonnet UHMWPE Fiber is an unique light-weighted composite providing superior bullet-proof property in both personal and vehicle protection, and it’s ideal material for armor and helmets. The bulletproof fabric is of soft hand-feel and has got 3A by NIJ standard.The Yoon Networks UHMWPE Fiber is also ideal high-performance material for cut-resistance glove, dental floss and etc.
