DYNAMICA SK99 is a 12 strand braided rope produced with Dyneema® SK99. The Dyneema® fibres are the strongest man-made fibres in the world, and the SK99 is the strongest of them all.
Compared to our standard ropes, DYNAMICA SK78, the SK 99 ropes are 20% stronger. This means that the SK99 provides immense strength even at a smaller diameter. Moreover, the SK99 has a low weight which not only makes the rigging easier, but it also means a decrease in handling speed, using less resources which is a direct cost-saving.
The DYNAMICA SK99 is strong, light and has a low elongation, making it an safe alternative to steel wire rope. If rupture occurs, the SK99 ropes’ low mass and elongation results in the energy being distributed along the rope’s entire length in a linear fashion with a relatively low recoil. This is unlike steel wire ropes, which are known for lashing out.
SK99 can be fitted for any operation
The DYNAMICA SK99 ropes can be produced to fit any operation in terms of diameter and working load limit (WLL). Moreover, the SK99 can be produced with a cover that can be fitted in the bearing points or on the entire rope, in any case the cover offers extra protection.

The DYNAMICA SK99 is a very abrasion resistant rope, which means that the rope can handle any operation. Even though the SK99 ropes are protected with cover and are very abrasion resistant, it is, however, important not to use the ropes over rusty surfaces and sharp edges. As this can lead to cuts, abrasion (inside and outside), splice damages, which will shorten the lifespan of the SK99 ropes.
Inspection of DYNAMICA SK99
To ensure a long lifespan, the DYNAMICA SK99 should be inspected when it has been used for a period of time or for a quantity of operations. During an inspection we look for damage, creep, elongation, abrasion, inconsistent diameter et cetera. This inspection will ensure a safe operation and increase the lifespan of the SK99 ropes.
Use the SK99 in a wide range of industries
The DYNAMICA SK99 can be used in a wide range of industries such as offshore, maritime, lifting, wind and others.
