he Properties of Fiber
- Highly absorbent
- Easy to blend with other yarns
- Natural touch and feel
- Durable and high tenacity
- High elongation
- Excellent abrasion resistance
- Highly resilient
- High resistance for insects, fungi, mildew, rot and many chemicals
- Melts instead of burning
- Lint free (important in some automotive industry especially painting areas)
This popular combination is a good and cost effective alternative for the use of Dyneema or Kevlar.
Several alternative brand names are in the market for this fibre combination such as Joneema etc.
For further reinforcement and cut resistant results also stainless steel can be added to the HDPE and glass fibre yarn.
- Extremely strong
- High impact strength
- High strength to density strength
- Minimal shrinkage
- Wrinkle resistance
- High colour retention
- Good water resistance
Lower in costs than nylon. Therefore more and more used as an more costs effective alternative. But the price comes with lower quality characteristics compared to nylon. (In the market there are even gloves with a Chinese mix with recycled polyester to get a lower price)
- o Excellent resistance to cuts, abrasion, sparks and heat.
- o 2,5 times more cut resistant than leather and up to 60% more than cotton
- Will not melt or burn.
- High tensile to weight ratio.
- 5x stronger than steel on equal weight basis (tensile strength).
- Very light and thin compared to traditional materials.
- Kevlar Kleen( Lint free for cleaner applications.
- Only used in mix with other yarn.
- Exceptional elasticity.
- But less durable as latex.
- Not suitable for high temperature developments.
- Comfortable and light weight.
- Has a tensile strength of 15x that of steel (on a weight to weight basis).
- Excellent cut resistance.
- Highly durable.
- Very high abrasion, moisture, UV rays and chemical resistance.
- Soft, odourless, non toxic.
- Adapts to the temperature of the skin; minimizing perspiration.
- High impact strength.
- Washable and reusable.
- Can be combined with a variety of different engineered yarns as well as with polyamide, polyester, Lycra, glass fibre, carbon or copper fibre and steel fibre providing a full range of options.
- Very versatile with different coatings
- Light weight.
- Easy to combine with other materials.
- Extremely high cut & puncture resistance.
