UHMWPE Fiber for Ropes and Cables UHMWPE Fiber used in ropes and cables:
rope, cable, boat sails and fishing gear made of the fiber is used in ocean engineering, which was the original application of the fiber.
It is widely used for negative power cord, overloading rope, salvage ropes, towing rope, sailing ropes and fishing lines, etc.
This rope's breaking strength under weight is 8 times of the steel, and 2 times of that of nomex fiber.
This rope works as anchor rope of super tanker, marine platform, and beacon. One UHMWPE fiber rope solved kinds of problems, such as frequent replacement because of the decrease of cable strength and rupture, which is caused by steel cable corrosion, polyester and nylon rope corrosion, hydrolysis, ultraviolet degradation.
