Around the world, Endumax® – made from a special type of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) – raises performance when performance counts. Does your product need to deliver extra strength, or higher ballistic or abrasion resistance, even in the most challenging conditions? You can be sure Endumax® – which is eleven-times stronger than steel at the same weight – will take you to the next level.
From ballistic shields and airfreight cargo containers to rope covers and nets, Teijin Aramid’s Endumax® adds value – by protecting, supporting and empowering – across an extremely wide range of applications and industries. To meet these wide-ranging demands, Endumax® can be supplied in different formats and with optional extras.
Developed by Teijin Aramid’s world-leading materials science experts, and brought to the market in 2012, Endumax® is a high-performance UHMWPE material. Its one-of-a-kind physical and chemical structure makes it – weight for weight – the strongest commercially available film material. And that’s not all. This unique structure enables a range of superlative performance properties, including new levels of resistance to impact, abrasion, chemicals and UV light. In this way, Endumax® can transform normal products into extraordinary ones – every time, without fail.
