Uldura’s cut resistant yarn utilizes a glass fiber core for superior cut protection. The core is then covered in specific blend of Twaron® and Spectra®. These are two of the leading protective yarns in the world. They can be found in the construction of armoured vehicles, bulletproof vests and all sorts of personal protective equipment.
Honeywell Spectra® fiber
Produced from a polyethylene polymer with a carbon-to- carbon molecular backbone (similar to that of a diamond), Spectra® fiber is a continuous filament fiber that is pound for pound ten times stronger than steel and up to forty percent stronger than aramids.
When strength and durability is needed to enhance a product’s features, to protect it in hostile environments or improve its performance under the harshest conditions, the super strong para-aramid fiber has become the choice of an increasing number of industries. Over the years, Teijin Twaron® has grown to become the preferred global supplier with its high-tech para-aramid fiber Twaron®.
