The strongest fibre -
One of the fibres we use is HMPE, a High Modulus Polyethylene fibre invented by DSM Dyneema®. This fibre offers you and your applications maximum strength at minimum weight.
Our FibreMax cables made with HMPE are as strong as steel-wire ropes, polyester or nylon ropes but offer smaller diameters and significantly lighter weight at minimal break loads. The increased strength and weight reduction offer you significant advantages in improved handling, increasing safety, faster operations and downsized constructions.
The HMPE specifications:
- Available in different grades, depending on creep properties
- High strength-to-weight ratio
- High creep, which should be considered in specific applications
- Good UV resistance
- Excellent fatigue life
- Low elongation
- Good chemical resistance
