Benefits of UHMWPE Rope

Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE, UHMW) is a subset of the thermoplastic polyethylene. Also known as high-modulus polyethylene, (HMPE), it has extremely long chains, with a molecular mass usually between 3.5 and 7.5 million amu.The longer chain serves to transfer load more effectively to the polymer backbone by strengthening intermolecular interactions. This results in a very tough material, with the highest impact strength of any thermoplastic presently made.

High-strength UHMWPE rope is made of high-strength polyethylene fiber, and is made of ultra-smooth and sensitive rope by using the thread reinforcement process. The surface of the rope body is added with a lubrication factor, which improves the coating on the surface of the rope. The smooth coating makes the rope durable, the color lasts, and prevents wear and fading. A flame retardant can be added so that it can be used where there is a source of fire.

UHMWPE high-strength rope has high strength: the strength is more than 10 times that of high-quality steel.

High modulus: second only to super carbon fiber. Low density: less than water, can float on water. The physical properties of high-strength high-modulus polyethylene fibers are excellent. A chemical group that has high crystallinity and does not easily react with chemicals. Therefore, it is resistant to water, humidity, chemical corrosion, and ultraviolet rays, so it does not need to undergo ultraviolet resistance treatment.

Corrosion resistance, acid and alkali resistance, excellent abrasion resistance, not only high modulus, but also soft, long flex life, high-strength high-modulus polyethylene fiber melting point between 144 ~ 152C, short-term exposure to 110C environment Does not cause severe performance degradation, etc.

UHMWPE high-strength rope can be used in all directions due to its various superior properties. High quality tow rope, high strength traction rope. Extremely high strength, light weight and easy to operate. Although the one-time investment is high, as long as the rope is properly maintained, its service life is 2-3 times that of other ropes.

Heavy-duty ropes used in the fishing and coastal industries. Offshore flooding systems, rescue systems, offshore oil platform systems, mooring, anchoring, embedded mooring lines, marine seismic surveys, submarine cables, lifting lines,yachting& sail cables, sail feet, hoist ropes, hoist ropes, tug & salvage Lines, gliding ropes, Umbrella rope, climbing rope, utility & rv winches,bow string for shooting, etc. Military ropes, sail cables, parachute ropes and other sailing ropes, helicopter long line, rescue towing and army and armored forces, a variety of strong ropes for sailing and maneuvering due to their high strength, small diameter, and weight Light, easy to carry and operate, etc., are suitable for use in many aspects.
