Proven product performance
Rope Tension Fatigue Model
Built on thousands of tests at fiber and rope level, this is the only way to accurately predict performance.
Fairlead Abrasions Test
Here we evaluate external abrasion at actual conditions – ideal for measuring the impact of fairlead surfaces when winching, lifting, and mooring.
Creep Performance Tool
Our modeling predicts creep rate and elongations as well as estimating creep lifetime.
Rope Temperature Model
Accurately predicting rope core temperatures means Dyneema® SK78 fiber can be used safely at higher operating temperatures.
Over 10 years, lines made with Dyneema® fiber have exceeded our expectations, bringing clear benefits in lifetime performance, efficiency, and safety. We’re delighted to extend our relationship with our partner and to use mooring ropes made with Dyneema® SK78 fiber on even more oil tankers.
