Dyneema? at sea
Dyneema is DSM’s brand for UHMwPE fiber. It’s the strongest, most durable lightweight fiber in the world - 15 times stronger than steel and so light it floats on water, making it ideal for use in a range of marine applications including ropes, lines, slings, nets and synthetic link chains.
Mooring and tow ropes with Dyneema are lighter, stronger, easier to handle than alternatives and more durable, so they speed up and improve the safety of maritime operations and last longer. Trawl ropes and nets & aquaculture nets made with Dyneema enable more sustainable fishing techniques that optimize catch and production and reduce costs. Ropes and slings made with Dyneema are helping offshore operators go deeper and further; stronger, lighter, thinner and safer than like-for-like steel wire ropes, they make it possible to open up new fields while reducing operational risks and costs. They also enable windfarm operators to lift and anchor offshore turbines in place.
