The international dynamic form of polymer polyethylene board

The international dynamic form of polymer polyethylene board

1. Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) was developed and applied in the early days in Europe and America. The development was relatively slow at the beginning, with an annual growth rate of about 5%. In recent years, due to conflicts and wars around the world, the development and research of bulletproof materials has received increasing attention. The number of bulletproof materials in use is also increasing. High-performance fibers have gradually replaced the mainstream bullet-proof materials made of traditional steel and ceramics. In the manufacture of bullet-proof jackets, bullet-proof jackets and bullet-proof helmets, ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fibers have their advantages. Its performance has received more attention. As a result, the ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene processing and modification technology has continued to develop. In recent years, the annual growth rate of foreign ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene has reached 15% to 20%. Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene started late in China and started higher. In recent years, ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene has developed rapidly, with an annual growth rate of 30%. UHMWPE is mainly used in the production of boards, profiles and profiles, accounting for more than 50% of the total demand. Industrial pipes account for about 20%, fiber 15%, filters 10%, and other 5%. In general, there is still a gap between supply and demand in the domestic UHMWPE market. With the continuous development of application fields and the continuous improvement of new technology levels, it is estimated that by 2015, the domestic ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene market demand will reach 50 million tons / year. In addition to the continuous expansion of the main application fields such as sheet, profile, and pipe, it is worth mentioning that in the field of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) fibers, it has developed rapidly in recent years and its market share has increased year by year. Since the terrorist attacks of 9/11, the demand for protective products such as bulletproof clothing has increased sharply. At present, there are some differences in the structure of UHMWPE fibers in Europe, America and Japan. Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fiber is mainly used in bulletproof clothing and weapons and equipment in Europe and the United States, accounting for 60% -70% of total consumption, followed by cables, fishing nets and labor protection supplies, and Japan is mainly used for cables, fishing nets and labor protection supplies. According to incomplete statistics, at this stage, China's ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fiber production enterprises have grown to about 20, with a total capacity of more than 6000 tons. With the increasing maturity of China's ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fiber chemical industry, coupled with the decline in production costs and product prices, it will certainly promote its research and development in the fields of national defense and civilian use, and social demand will continue to grow. In addition, due to the strict technical blockade of military ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fibers, the development of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fibers also has important strategic significance for China's national defense construction and military supply.

2. Summary and forecast of development prospects
Generally speaking, the application of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene products has gone from a simple shape and a single performance requirement to a complex shape and a variety of high-performance processes. In recent years, with the continuous development of processing modification technology, product applications have been extended to various areas of the national economy. It is expected that the annual growth rate of the demand for the international engineering plastics market will reach more than 10% in the next few years. With the gradual intensification of competition, high-performance engineering plastics such as high temperature resistance, wear resistance, electrical conductivity, and electromagnetic shielding will have a lot of room for development. Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) has many advantages that engineering plastics cannot match, and its demand will further expand. According to statistics, the domestic plastic building materials industry has an average annual growth of more than 15%, becoming the second largest industry after packaging in the plastic industry. The application of plastic plates is widely used in plastic building materials, especially ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene boards. With the continuous progress of technology, the production of plastic sheets has also developed in the direction of combining beauty and use, and its functions have also expanded in the direction of more professional and special functions. As a result, demand in the region will increase year by year.
In addition, with the increasing maturity of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fiber processing technology in China, the reduction of production costs and product prices, the research and development of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fibers in the field of national defense and civilian use will be a very important subject.
