Why choose Dyneema® SK78?

The global trend towards mooring and towing larger vessels means today, ropes are required to have a much higher strength and durability. If equipment isn’t strong, durable or high-performing enough, it can lead to equipment failure, or even worse; severe worker injuries.

  • Dyneema® SK78 lines are light and easy to handle 
  • As strong as steel-wire ropes but less than one-seventh the weight – and they float
  • Used by 75% of all the world’s LNG tankers
  • 30% of the weight of equally strong polyester or nylon lines
