Hygiene is key to successful aquaculture. Keeping netting and equipment clean is essential for fish health, the health of consumers, and, in turn, for the health of aquaculture operations. That’s why fish farms clean their netting every 10 to 14 days on average. But high-pressure water jet cleaning is as tough as it sounds: repeated cleaning can take its toll on netting in the long term.

Think repairs. Replacements. Reduced efficiency. Now think again – because Dyneema®, the world’s strongest fiber™, has come up with a worthy solution.

Our latest innovation helps your nets withstand high-pressure cleaning (HPC) methods – combining unparalleled durability with first-rate hygiene.

Introducing the next-generation of Dyneema® in aquaculture

Dyneema® SK75 fiber has been a key ingredient in the world’s leading aquaculture equipment for more than 20 years.

And now, our world-class technical team has used its vast expertise to craft an all-new specialized fiber coating. As with every Dyneema® innovation grade, it’s been carefully engineered to score you multiple net benefits.

  • 4x better abrasion resistance*
  • 5x less mesh shrinkage*
  • Increased HPC resistance

*Compared to conventional Dyneema® SK75 fiber 

Designed for durability

With four times better abrasion resistance to HPC, Dyneema®’s specialized fiber treatment means netting lasts longer without losing its structural integrity. In fact, nets made using our specialized treatment need less water pressure to be cleaned just as thoroughly – making every cleaning cycle more efficient as well as giving equipment a longer lifetime. 

In a nutshell? Nets made with our innovation grade minimize disruption, maximize productivity, and save money on replacements.  

Reeling in operational efficiency

Dyneema®’s innovative specialized fiber treatment enables 5x less mesh shrinkage – for netting that can easily be reattached to its float collar after servicing. For fish farmers, that means less downtime. Quicker servicing. And optimized productivity.  

And don’t let marine fouling weigh your operations down. Nets using Dyneema® have 30% less surface area than alternatives, so our fiber is never a drag. In fact, its lightweight strength enables better handling and less expensive anti-fouling.

Lighter and more compact. Quicker, safer, and easier to work with. All these benefits help our innovation grade deliver STRENGTHplus+ unrivaled operational efficiency.

Making a splash, sustainably

Fish farms aren’t the only ones that pay for frequent replacement of broken netting. Our planet does too.

Thanks to longer-lasting netting made with Dyneema®, you can look after your fish stocks, your budget, and the environment. After all, less frequent net replacement leads to less material use and waste. Plus, by enabling higher cleaning standards and a lower surface area, our fiber can reduce the need for harmful anti-fouling chemicals. Altogether, this adds up to less pressure on our precious planet.

Don't just take our word for it

Aquaculture demands reliability and consistency. The kind that’s best achieved through ground-breaking innovation and rigorous testing.

With Dyneema®-based aquaculture nets and ropes, you can rest assured that your equipment is made of tough stuff. All our fibers have been tried and tested to withstand extreme sea conditions and deliver a world-leading performance.

Proven performance on:
  • Abrasion resistance

  • Mesh shrinkage
