Dyneema® the Worlds Strongest Fibre™
Specific Gravity - .97 Melt Point - 144-152°C Tenacity - 30gpd
Dyneema® Fibre is one of the more common high performance fibre available on the market. Its high strength and low elongation and light weight make it the ideal braid for sheets, guys and control lines. It has excellent chemical resistance and UV resistance, although it tends to have a cover over the dyneema core, generally polyester, to increase its working life. The Dyneema® SK75, SK78 and SK90 yarn is the strongest fibre in our current range. Negatives in using Dyneema® are the slippery nature of the fibre and the tendency to creep, i.e. elongation under a prolonged load.
