MX-4 is the world’s first high performance fishing net made of slit yarn, jointly developed by Kinoshita Fishing Net Mfg. Co., Ltd. and Teijin Limited. MX-4 combines Teijin’s advanced Endumax®film and Kinoshita Fishing Net’s manufacturing technology implemented with world-leading net-knitting machines for knotless netting, made by crossing threads with each other for extra strength and abrasion resistance.
MX-4 is made of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene film (slit yar). It is especially suitable for harsh environments where durability and fast drainage are crucial. MX-4 does not shrink easily and is resistant to breakage due to abrasion even after hundreds of castings, so it can be used safely for long periods. It also improves work efficiency and cost efficiency by reducing needs for net reconditioning and tailoring. In addition, it reduces the frequency of net disposal and is more marine friendly.
The strength of MX-4 is over 3 times stronger than general-purpose fiber net, so it is ideal for overloaded part.
The rate of the shrinkage is less than one-third of general UHMWPE nets.Mesh size is stable and its shape is less likely to be changed.
The film, slit yarn, is more resistant to friction and more durable than fiber.
