Teijin Aramid (Arnhem, The Netherlands) recently opened a new plant for the production of Endumax, a new high-performance polyethylene (HP-PE) tape. The tape is made from what the company calls a “special type of polyethylene” that is reported to be 11 times stronger than steel at the same weight, with stiffness comparable to carbon fiber, but it is not brittle. It is said to be strong, chemical-resistant and easily adaptable for effective use in thin and flat structures. Potential applications include bullet-resistant and other high-performance plates and tubes.
