So you think all HMPE is the same?
Achieve up to 4 times higher service life with Dyneema® SK78. Mooring ropes with Dyneema® SK78 massively outperform alternative ropes in abrasion and creep lifetime comparisons, without sacrificing strength and reliability.
Meet our partners at SMM & find out how ropes with Dyneema® SK78 reduce costs while ensuring the safety of your crew and fleet.
Same strength ≠ same service life
Dyneema® massively outperforms all generic HMPE in abrasion and creep lifetime comparisons. Mooring ropes made with Dyneema® SK78 are ideal for handling LNG tankers.
In order to be as strong as a high quality rope with Dyneema® SK78, a generic HMPE rope has to adapt the rope construction by increasing the lay length of the strands and increasing the braid period of the rope. As a consequence, the combination of the rope construction and the intrinsic generic HMPE performance reduces the service life thus increasing costs.
When measured, Dyneema® SK78 matches its claimed strength of 35 cN/dtex, while other generic HMPE fibers show significant variation, being up to 22% lower in strength.
At DSM Dyneema, consistent quality is a core driver within our manufacturing process. HMPE fibers from DSM Dyneema have consistent quality with each supply, thus securing the high quality of the products made from them.
Only Dyneema® delivers consistent quality & reliability
Dyneema® has the most uniform fiber thickness when compare with generic HMPE fiber. Choosing Dyneema® ensures you have the best and most stable performance characteristics in your rope.
