To keep meeting the increasing demands of today’s transportation and logistics industries, manufacturers of ropes and cables need to offer lighter, stronger and more durable products. By leveraging the high-performance properties of Endumax®, manufacturers can make their ropes and cables last longer, lift heavier weights, and reach greater depths – making these materials ideal for the offshore, leisure and mining industries.
Weight for weight, Endumax® is the strongest available film in the market and, due to a low UHMWPE creep and high modulus, it offers high dimensional stability at very low weight. The inherent stiffness of Endumax® provides a high responsiveness and direct contact between payload and operator, as well as improving the durability of rope and cable products, making Endumax® a perfect material for this demanding industry.
Safer rope and cable products
Unlike heavy, and sometimes dangerous, steel cables, the ropes, lines and lifting slings made from flexible, hard-wearing Endumax® are much easier and safer to handle and require less energy for carrying and handling. The low weight of Endumax®-based products reduces the chance of injuries, and with their low coefficient of friction, high corrosion resistance and high UV resistance, they withstand failure due to degradation. The abrasion resistance property of Endumax film is excellent and is a major contributor to the improved lifetime of Endumax ropes when compared to that of ropes made of UHMWPE fiber. The neutral buoyancy of ropes, slings and cables based on Endumax® makes them very suitable for a wide range of offshore working and towing applications.
Our team of experts are available to offer you tailored advice on how to best integrate Endumax® into your rope and cable products.
