The 40th Chinese Antarctic Expedition, departing from Shanghai, the "Xuelong" and "Xuelong 2" played a vital role in scientific exploration. During this Antarctic expedition, FBR played a crucial role with its cutting-edge technology in the field of fiber ropes.
Xuelong 2 Polar Research Vessel (H2560) is China's first independently-built polar scientific research icebreaker, capable of continuous icebreaking voyages in 1.5-meter-thick ice, which fills China's gap in the field of major equipment for polar scientific research.
Actively participating in mooring projects of several nationally significant research vessels, FBR provided a mooring line for the "Xuelong 2" polar research vessel.
This UHMWPE fiber boasts numerous superior qualities, including high strength, lightweight, low elongation, and prolonged lifespan. Its outstanding resistance to tension, coupled with impressive anti-ageing and anti-chemical corrosion properties, made FBR's contribution in ensuring reliable equipment support for the "Xuelong 2." Which significantly facilitated the progress of the Antarctic scientific expedition.
