UHMWPE fiber is also called Ultra-high Molecular Weight PE Fiber, high strength high modulus PE fiber or high oriented PE fiber. The fiber is an excellent thermoplastic materials. Together with the carbon fiber and aramid fiber, it is titled as one of the three major high-tech fiber in the world.
CHARACTERISTICS OF FIBER
Abrasion resistance, tear resistance, cut resistance
Soft hand-feel, super properties of moisture absorption and permeability,
comfortable and flexible for wearing
Life is 4-6 times of ordinary yarn gloves and canvas gloves
Abrasion resistance property is 70 times of cotton yarn gloves
according to EN388 standard.
The covered yarn mainly made of UHMWPE fiber could be knitted by computer controlling and coated with resin to produce anti-cut gloves. Anti-cut gloves made from UHMWPE yarn can be devided into anti-cut level 3, anti-cut level 4 and anti-cut level 5 according to EN388 standard. The anti-cut gloves can provide labor protection in mechanical processing, machine, drilling, drilling and oil extraction, packing and logistics, construction, automobile manufacturing and marine vessel industries, etc.
