High Strength Fibers and Tapes

High strengths fibers and tapes made from UHMWPE present an advantageous platform of materials for diverse solutions. As a pioneer in the field, Polteco has developed high performing UHMWPE fibers and tapes and customized them for several different applications. Tensile strength, elasticity, crystallinity, and surface modification for improved adhesion are a few examples of customized properties for introducing functionality into this versatile form.

Project Examples:

Dental Floss

The first of its kind, this UHMWPE dental floss was developed by our team.  Made of unitary UHMWPE tape, it avoids the shredding of conventional multifilament fiber floss products, while providing users a dental floss product without PTFE or PFOAs.
