D12 SK78

12 x 1 plaited, with Dyneema®

made with Dyneema® SK78

There is a long list of advantages of using Dyneema® fibres to replace steel wire, polyester or nylon. The very strong and very light D12, with Dyneema®, has proven to be an efficient and well performing alternative:   

  • extremely light
  • extremely strong
  • easy handling
  • lower loading on hardware (please note: the way of loading is different)
  • low stretch, low shrinkage
  • high cut resistance
  • long life
