Dyneema® is an UHMwPE (Ultra High Molecular weight Polyethylene) fibre developed by DSM in the Netherlands little over 20 years ago. An ingredient material in many of our ropes, Dyneema® is light weight and renowned as "The World's Strongest FibreTM". So what makes Dyneema® so special?

  • High Strength: On a weight for weight basis, Dyneema® is 15 times stronger than steel wire
  • Light Weight: Size for size, Dyneema® is 8 times lighter than steel wire. Strength for Strength Dyneema is 15 time lighter than steel wire. Dyneema® also has a Specific Gravity of 0.97 which means it floats in water
  • Water resistant: Dyneema® is hydrophobic and does not absorb water, meaning it remains light when working in wet conditions and is there also more durable
  • Chemical resistance: Dyneema® is chemically inert, and performs well in dry, wet, salty and humid conditions, as well as other situations where chemicals are present.
  • UV Resistant: Dyneema® has very good resistance to photo degradation, maintaining its performance when exposed to UV light
