Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) fiber
OTEX Specialty Narrow Fabrics® high-performance UHMWPE Webbing is a critical component for life-threatening jobs that cannot afford a snap or break, such as aerospace and mountaineering. Due to its water-repelling properties and floating capabilities, Spectra® or Dyneema® webbing is often found on ships or off-shore rigging. They do undergo shrinkage at high temperatures, but will burn slowly.
OTEX Specialty Narrow Fabrics® QC & Test Lab ensures our products conform to the highest industry standards for critical applications. Our products are backed by the UL Certificate of Compliance for multiple NFPA standards that can be found on the UL online certifications directory at www.ul.com/database
