Lash and lift better with Synthetic Link Chains
Versatile and user-friendly solution for operators and loads
Synthetic link chains benefit crews, cargoes, and business efficiency. They're eight times stronger and up to 85% lighter than comparable steel link chain alternatives. They even float on water, and one person can work with them all day long.
- Easier handling and positioning saves time and money
- Easy to shorten and less likely to damage cargo
- Less noisy means faster work with better communication
Ideal for more and more industries & applications
Synthetic chains made with Dyneema® are already used for lashing and towing in outsized cargo transport, heavy shipping, heavy trucking/hauling, fishery, and aquaculture. And new uses involving lifting are now entering the market.
Synthetic link chains for lifting outperform steel
Synthetic link chains provide a superior way to lift large, delicate and outsize equipment and components. They are just as strong as their steel alternatives, but lighter, safer, less likely to cause damage, quick to adjust on the fly, and easy to coil and store. From lifting heavy equipment, components, and timber, to general-purpose lifting and intra-plant handling, synthetic link chains do everything steel chains and slings can do, only better.
Crosby Tycan® chains: made with Dyneema® to be a better way to lash cargo
Crosby Tycan® chains can be used to lash anything from a six-tonne wind turbine blade to a 600-tonne electrical transformer. Being lighter, stronger, and easier to work with, they do this more efficiently, securely, and safely than you can with steel chains. And they don’t damage cargo either.
Quieter: Steel link chains and slings make lots of noise. Lifting and lashing chains made with Dyneema® are quiet.
Higher Productivity: Being stronger and lighter, lifting and lashing link chains with Dyneema® reduce handling time 300% and offer significant labor savings.
Less Damage: Steel chains and slings can damage equipment and cargo. Being soft as well as strong, chains made with Dyneema® don't cause paint or other damage.
Non-conductive: Dyneema® fiber is a natural insulator, helping protect workers and equipment from dangerous electrical currents.
More Durable: Synthetic link chains with Dyneema® cause much less wear and tear to equipment, extending equipment lifetimes and lowering maintenance costs.
Meeting climate change targets will require a mix of renewable energy solutions. Strong and lightweight Dyneema® can help developers cut the cost of renewable energy today – and enable the innovative renewable technologies we will need going forward.
