Supreme Protector Fabric May Be The
Worlds Strongest Woven Textile...
High Performance Fabrics
The ultimate high-performance
fabric is Supreme Protector* fabric. UHMW-PE (ultra-high molecular weight
polyethylene) yarns and fabrics have been used in a broad range of applications
since it came to the market in the 1980's. It is used in rope, cordage,
cut-resistant gloves, yacht sails, safety aprons, and bullet-resistant vests.
UHMW-PE fabric has a low melting point, is smooth to the touch, naturally white,
resists adhesives, and is non-absorbent. These characteristics can be drawbacks
if you want to apply a coating using glue or heat. Several years of development
work at JHRG has produced a patented production method to coat UHMW-PE fabric
with EVA and PE films.
The result is a supple, flexible, non-permeable fabric with the benefits of
film-coatings. Our newest materials are waterproof, flame-resistant, and dirt-
and chemical- resistant. The great properties of UHMW-PE (like tear strength,
cut-resistance, abrasion resistance and tenacity) are still there, but now you
can have your choice of colors without worries about permeation. Our latest
fabrics have been used for demanding jobs where high strength, light weight, and
waterproof characteristics are required.
Applications for Supreme Protector fabrics include safety garments, tow-straps, gear bags,
and backpacks, hovercraft skirts, electronic shields, machinery containers,
tarpaulin reinforcements, money bags, boat covers, marine chafe prevention devices and scores
of other uses.
Lightweight strength and permeation resistance has found significant use in
maritime, meat processing and aviation industries.
