Dongyang Miracle develops super fibre ‘UHMWPE Yarn-MirAcle’

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA: Dongyang MirAcle, which has led Korea’s technical textile industry, said that it has successfully developed ‘UHMWPE yarn,’ one of the strongest fibre among synthetic fibers.

In particular, it has established research centre in 2007 to develop high tenacity fibre, new material fibre and automation facilities.

“MirAcle which has been produced through gel spinning has specific strength 15 times higher than steel wire, and it has excellent UV resistance and chemical resistance, moreover, since it has excellent abrasion resistance and can be used in extremely harsh conditions, the scope of application will be widened,” said an official of the Dongyang MirAcle.

Dongyang is the only company in the world which can supply HDPE yarns in all range of tensile strength since it has developed not only gel spun UHMWPE yarn – MirAcle but also melt spun HDPE yarn.

The UHMWPE yarn and melt spun HDPE yarn were all imported due to the limitation of domestic technology. Moreover, the development of the new applications using high tenacity HDPE yarns has been too slow since the import volume was very limited. However, the MirAcle which has excellent quality compared to other companies was specialized in order to develop customized products by supplying excellent tenacity, creep characteristics, coating performance and customized specification.

This product can be applied to military supplies such as bulletproof jacket and bulletproof helmet, leisure and sports goods, and used for high performance rope, high performance fishing net, industrial safety gloves, protection gears, mountain bike frame, rock climbing rope, paragliding, fiber reinforced concrete, high performance motorcycle helmet, baseball stadium net, dental floss, gastroscope wire, industrial fabric, non-woven fabric, staple fiber and suture, etc.

“Although we are the leader in Korea, we still have a long way to go in the global market, we will secure unrivalled competitiveness through excellent quality control system and management innovation like we have accomplished so far. We are continuously developing yarn products with various deniers and excellent quality, and cooperating with customers to pioneer new application areas,” said an official of the Dongyang MirAcle.
