Teijin Aramid has opened its newest plant for the production of their polyethylene tape (HP-PE), Endumax.
Teijin explain that Endumax tape is made from a special type of polyethylene (UHMWPE) and is 11x stronger than steel at the same weight, while its stiffness is comparable to carbon Fibre. The say the tape is extremely strong, chemical resistant, not brittle, light in weight and can easily and effectively be used in thin and flat structures. It is expected to play a significant role in making various materials stronger and lighter.
Teijin don’t use solvent in the production of Endumax tape, which they say offer the advantages of a lower environmental impact due to less energy consumption and lower emissions into water and air as well.
