Lightweight high strength Seismic Ropes
Outperform the rest in every way
The marine seismic industry is a long-time user of ropes and lines made with Dyneema®. With proven performance in every environment, companies know that seismic ropes made with Dyneema® SK78 outperform the alternatives in every way.
Known reliability and leading edge performance
Marine seismic ropes made with Dyneema® SK78 are thinner yet stronger and safer - and they make it easier to position sensors precisely.
- Thinner and lighter ropes reduce drag
- Low elongation makes it easy to place sensors accuratel
- Exceptional abrasion-resistance for cable protection
Exceptionally low creep performance with Dyneema® Max Technology
The exceptionally low and predictable creep characteristics of Dyneema® Max Technology extend the range of applications to long-term permanently loaded systems. Even better, the elongation is easy to model using our Creep Design Tool. This enables engineers to treat creep elongation as just another design parameter.
Dyneema® XBO Technology
Rope made with HMPE fiber already outperforms other synthetic fibers on bending performance. Now, with Dyneema® XBO Technology, HMPE ropes can have similar bending performance as specialty steel wire ropes. Result: Dyneema® XBO Technology significantly extends the service life of HMPE ropes under extreme bending conditions.
Hunting for neutrinos with Dyneema®
Using Dyneema® DM20 in an ambitious project 2,5km down the ocean. KM3NeT needed ropes that provided the perfect tradeoff between strength, drag, and creep-resistance. Discover how Dyneema® offers crucial help in moving closer to realization.

The Greenest Strength™
How does choosing Dyneema® help the environment? The Polarcus seismic survey vessel uses ropes made with Dyneema®. “I cannot remember the last time we had a failure”, says Erik Godoy.
- 15% fuel saving
- Up to 50% reduced material (thinner ropes & double the lifetime)
