Dyneema® Fiber

Dyneema® yarn
They said it couldn’t be done, but we did it anyway… an even stronger fiber for when only the very strongest will do

Dyneema® is a super-strong fiber made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMwPE).

The secret to the superior performance of Dyneema® fiber (UHMwPE) lies in the extremely long molecular chains that transfer load more effectively to the polymer backbone. As a result Dyneema® offers maximum strength combined with minimum weight. It is up to 15 times stronger than quality steel and up to 40% stronger than aramid fibers, both on weight for weight basis. Dyneema® fiber floats on water and is extremely durable and resistant to moisture, UV light and chemicals. The applications are therefore more or less unlimited.

Typical applications
Used in maritimeoffshore, sailing, industrial, and cut resistant applications that demand maximum breaking strength, abrasion resistance, cut resistance, plus in the case of  SK78 , low creep properties as well.
