Outline

  • Tsunooga® is industrial fiber material which has excellent strength and modulus. Tsunooga® surpasses para-aramid fibers in lightness and cut resistance and offers more than twice cut resistance than nylon and polyester fibers.
    (evaluated using the EN388 coup test method)
    And low specific weight 0.97g/cm3. Moreover, Tsunooga® provides outstanding resistance to weather and chemicals.

Applications

1.Gloves

Tsunooga® is a high strength polyethylene fiber with excellent cut resistance. Gloves made with Tsunooga® is a soft and nice texture. Also, no solvents are used in the manufacturing of the fiber, so it is better than other HMWPE yarns from a hygienic standpoint.

 

 

2.Bedding

  • ‘Tsunooga®’ has high specific heat and high thermal conductivity, so it absorbs heat from the skin, thereby diffusing heat. Using the fiber in fabrics gives the fabric a cool touch to the skin.
