Ultra-High-Molecular-Weight Polyethylene

Ultra-High-Molecular-Weight Polyethylene webbing (UHMWPE) is ideal in applications where a high breaklaod is required with low stretch properties.

SKU: N/A Categories: ,


UHMWPE fiber is one of the strongest and lighest fibers available.  A bright white polyethylene, it is 15 times stronger than steel, more durable than polyester and has a specific strength that is 40% greater than aramid fiber.  With outstanding toughness and extraordinary visco-elastic properties, UHMWPE fiber can withstand high load strain rate velocities.


Properties of UHMWPE Fiber:

  • One of the highest strength to weight ratios of any manmade fiber

  • Oustanding toughness and visco-elasti properties

  • Light enough to float

  • High resistance to chemicals, water and ultraviolet light

  • Excellent vibration damping, flex fatigue and internal fiber friction characteristics

  • Low elongation

  • High resistance to abrasion

  • Resists corrosion

  • Low dielectric constant
