  • 'DC 12' Dyneema® SK78

    Diameter (mm)
    Reel Length
    Manufacturer: English Braids® (UK), official partner of Dyneema®. 

    Multiple tests show that Dyneema® SK78 lasts about 4 times longer than generic HMPE's due to it's better external/internal abrasion and creep resistance. 

    The 12 strand UHMWPE/HMPE (Dyneema® SK78) construction is used to ensure that the maximum strength is delivered through the rope providing a high diameter for breaking load ratio.

    Dyneema is a UHMPE (Ultra High Modulus Polyethylene, also known as UHMWPE or Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene) and is available in a number of different grades.
    All grades of Dyneema have excellent fatigue resistance (cyclic bending) and UV, chemical and abrasion resistance, but all have poor heat resistance due to a relatively low melting point (140 deg.C).

    Dyneema offers by far the best strength to weight ratio of any material used in rope manufacture and is the material of choice for high performance cores.

    100% Dyneema® SK78 delivers ultimate strength for diameter. Available in a range of colours through PU coatings.

    We offer a range of Dyneema / HMPE cores to suit application preferences as well as budget.
