From connecting power grids and distribution systems, using tether cables, or bringing fiber-optic communication cables to homes and businesses, many industries now recognize the value of selecting cable solutions being lighter, thinner, and showing significantly improved fatigue characteristics.
It’s because of these high demands that Dyneema® - the world’s strongest fiber™, provides a better solution than aramids for your cables. Dyneema® is twice as light and twice as thin for equal strength – enabling twice the cable running length for same yarn bobbin weight compared to aramid. Furthermore, it has excellent tension and flex fatigue performance, is water repellent and has excellent chemical resistance properties. Making it the superior choice for today’s and tomorrow’s requirements.
Space and weight saving design helps enable more data throughput in less space
Up to twice as strong as aramid fibers, with chemical, cut, and abrasion resistance to withstand extreme conditions
More than twice the service life compared to aramid fiber-based solutions
Dyneema® fiber can be easy processed into power and data communication cables and umbilicals, whether it’s in various textile forms, via hot overmoulding (even though its melting temperature is lower than aramid) or extrusion coating.
Dyneema® can be braided, knitted, helically wrapped by conventional textile machinery
Dyneema® fiber can be overmoulded/extrusion coated with polymer masses (e.g. VLDPE, LDPE, HDPE, MD-E, TPE, and TPU) with mass temperatures exceeding the melting temperature of Dyneema®
