Teijin Aramid has opened its newest plant for the production of the world’s strongest tape, Endumax, in Emmen, Netherlands. By adding the new high-performance polyethylene tape (HP-PE) to its product portfolio, the Teijin Group has taken the next step toward global market leadership in super fibers & materials.

The aim is to obtain a global market share with Endumax of at least 15% by 2015. Production capacity will be 1,000 tons a year before the end of 2012. Teijin is one of the largest investors in the Dutch economy and has once again invested dozens of millions of euros for the production of Endumax. A boost for employment and the economy in the northern part of the country. The plant also provides dozens of extra jobs in the area around Emmen.

Endumax tape is made from a special type of polyethylene (UHMWPE) and is 11x stronger than steel at the same weight, while its stiffness is comparable to carbon fiber. In contrast to the manufacture of most polyethylene fibers on the market, no solvent is used to produce Endumax tape.
