Per Metre

Black polyester strong webbing combining many of the benefits of both polypropylene and nylon but without the negatives. Polyester is Polyethylene Terephalate. WPE4 has a rougher texture than WPE1 and 2

Uses: due to its excellent resistance to sunlight it is ideal for outdoor use, it is a versatile fibre which has excellent properties for many applications. Use with 25mm or 40mm buckles and fixings.

  • Breaking strength of 1000kg
  • Very high strength tenacity (up to 10g/den)
  • Elongation - up to 25% at breaking point
  • Abrasion - excellent resistance (5 times that of polypropylene softer feel)
  • Moisture - has a very low regain of 0.4% making it feel damp very quickly
  • Temperature - the melting point is around 260 degrees C and will withstand temperatures above 180 degrees C for some time. It will lose some strength if kept at high temperature for extended periods.  low temperature resistance is very good increasing in strength and reducing elongation.
  • It is difficult to ignite and due to its tightly woven structure burns slowly
  • Inert to most common chemicals
  • Excellent colour fastness
  • Rot, UV and mildew resistant
