Recent years have seen a massive growth in the use of round slings (Heavy Lift) made with Dyneema® to replace steel wire ropes. Discover better ways to assess the in-use condition and residual life expectancy of synthetic EXTREEMA® round slings made with UHMWPE fiber.

Dyneema® is a super-strong fiber made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMwPE). The secret to the superior performance of Dyneema® fiber (UHMwPE) lies in the extremely long molecular chains that transfer load more effectively to the polymer backbone. As a result Dyneema® offers maximum strength combined with minimum weight. It is up to 15 times stronger than quality steel and up to 40% stronger than aramid fibers, both on weight for weight basis. Dyneema® fiber floats on water and is extremely durable and resistant to moisture, UV light and chemicals. The applications are therefore more or less unlimited.

Not all the same

Not all HMPE is the same! Dyneema® yarn is made in the EU and can be supplied with a Certificate of EU-Origin by DSM NV. Furthermore, unlike Asian HMPE, tremendous research has been done over the past 30 years on the technical apects of Dyneema® yarn which we are happy to share with our customers.
