UHMPE Twisted Twine

Twisted Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Twine (UHMWPE)

  • Exceptional strength to weight ratio
  • UHMWPE twine is 15 times stronger than steel pound for pound
  • Very little stretch or elasticity
  • Will float
  • Will not absorb water
  • Light weight
  • Not as abrasion resistant as braided UHMWPE twine
  • Stronger than braided UHMWPE
  • Uncoated fiber is soft to the touch- easy on your hands
  • Various coatings are available to increase abrasion resistance and knot holding ability
  • The cost per pound, per foot or meter is much higher than traditional polyethylene, nylon or polyester
  • Ideal where an extremely strong, low stretch twine is needed
