HMPE/Dyneema® ropes stronger than steel!
Many users ask “What is HMPE/Dyneema® and Dyneema ropes”? The short answer is that Dyneema® is the world’s strongest man-made fibre™.
Dyneema® is also called ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), used for manufacturing several types of ropes, slings and tethers.
At Dynamica Ropes, we manufacture our rope solutions with HMPE/Dyneema® in order to offer you the lightest, strongest and most reliable solution possible.
Our HMPE/Dyneema® product range
All our products are constructed as 12-strand braid, but they vary in fibres, cores and covers. Below you can see our standard products:
|SecureLift Slings||Fibre roundslings|
|SafeLift Slings||Rope slings|
|Tethers||Subsea/Deepsea fibre & rope Tethers|
|Mooring & Towing ropes||Abrasion - & UV resistant ropes|
|Winch ropes||Winch ropes for 4x4, gliders, lashings, taglines, helicopters & j-tube|
|Ropes||A variety of ropes made with the worlds strongest man-made fibre|
For most applications, we produce the products with HMPE/Dyneema® fibres SK75 and SK78. On request, we produce with SK99, DM20 and XBO.
SK75 and SK78 outperform all the other HMPE fibres in measured strength ensuring a stable performance in your rope. Moreover, the creep lifetime under equal load and
temperature is much longer. SK78 has lower creep than SK75, making it the preferred choice for static applications.

When choosing ropes, slings or tethers with HMPE/Dyneema® there are some clear don’ts.
Do not make knots! Introducing knots will cause 60 % loss of strength and you will not get maximum strength. Instead, opt for splices. When executed by trained and authorised riggers you will only lose 10 % of the initial strength.
Our riggers have performed thousands of splices. They are educated to handle unique and custom-made products to ensure a uniform and premium manufacturing process.
