Our models in HPMETechnical material
A high performance fiber
High performance fiber
High Modulus Polyethylene, or HMPE (for High Modulus PolyEthylene) is a fiber with exceptional properties: phenomenal breaking strength, excellent abrasion resistance, extreme lightness, resistance to UV and chemicals. We use this material under a neutral brand or under the Dyneema® brand, according to your specifications and according to the tenacity and the modulus required.
An alternative to metal
HMPE is very safe, in the event of a break in the rope or strap, there is no whiplash effect unlike metal. The risk of injury to the hands is therefore less unlike metal. On the other hand, this material is 15 times more resistant than metal at equal weight! this is a significant advantage when weight is an important criterion in your developments and when using our items. This material is therefore gradually replacing steel in certain technical uses: winch cables, PPE, vehicle traction, etc.
We are alsomanufacturers!
On request or from the catalogue, we are able to associate all our textile articles with an infinite choice of terminations: plastic buckles, metal parts, hooks, tilting ends, thimbles, carabiners... Our technical team is at your disposal for all your developments. .
Properties Of our HPME models
Density of 0.97: HMPE floats
Tenacity of 37 cN/tex
Elongation before rupture: 3.5%
Non-magnetic, insensitivity to corrosion, bad weather, chemical agents.
Very reassuring, in the event of the rope or strap breaking, there is no whipping effect unlike metal, therefore less risk of injury to the hands.
In the event of constant tension, a phenomenon of creep is observed on articles made of this material.
