  • The ultra high molecular weight polyethylene fiber has higher cutting resistance factor and higher glove production rate.
  • Gloves made of this fiber compared with aramid fiber and steel wire yarn are lighter, thinner, more tactile, comfortable to wear, and wear well, protecting front-line workers even under harsh working conditions.
  • Good cutting resistance, wear resistance, softness and comfort; Gentle and convenient, cutting and abrasion resistance can bring more extraordinary flexible fingertip experience.

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.
