Endumax® - 3

What is Endumax®? Developed by Teijin Aramid’s materials science experts, and brought to the market in 2012, Endumax® is a highperformance UHMWPE material. Its unique physical and chemical structure makes it – weight for weight – 11 times stronger than steel. What’s more, this unique structure enables a range of superlative performance properties, including new levels of resistance to impact, abrasion, chemicals and high temperatures. In this way, Endumax® can reliably transform normal products into extraordinary ones. Over time, Endumax® has become a go-to solution across industries and...

Endumax® - 4

A unique production process The unique properties of Endumax® are enabled by a unique production process. To start with, UHMWPE is compacted into an extremely rigid sheet. Using our special technology and equipment, this sheet is rolled and stretched to the right thickness, which is between 40 and 60 μm. In this way, the long polymer chains are aligned, giving Endumax® a unique set of mechanical properties. From here, films can be split to create narrower films or laid next to each other to form laminates with a maximum width of 1.6 m. In line with our wider corporate responsibilities,...

How is Endumax® used? Aquaculture nets Ballistic protection Often located far away from replacement nets or maintenance operatives, aquaculture nets need to be built to last and offer total reliability to fish farmers. Netting durability can directly impact on the netting operation quality for aquaculture farmers. Endumax® net products not only offer long-lasting performance and have low shrinkage, they also decrease bio-fouling and improve cleaning efficiency. Protective composites made from Endumax® are used in insert plates, protective panels and helmets, and offer a very high energy...

Piercarlo Molta | CEO Flexon Composites Laminated sails Ropes, cables and slings Endumax® film offers a very high modulus, good UV resistance, and good flex fatigue, making it very suitable for use in laminated sails. Sails made of Endumax® keep their shape even under severe forces, they are not damaged by ultra-violet light, and they can be endlessly folded and unfolded. Unlike the round shape of ordinary fibers, the flat form of Endumax® film lends itself naturally to the flat surface of sails. Fibers require the use of more resin, and carbon fibers tend to be too brittle to be used for...
