Dyneema

HMPE, also known as Dyneema, is a High Modulus Polyethylene fibre invented by DSM Dyneema®.

This fibre offers maximum strength at minimum weight.

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

PBO, short for Poly Benzoxazole, is the next generation of super fibres. Its strength and modulus are higher than those of any synthetic fibre on the market and almost double that of Kevlar®.

Over the past eight years, PBO had become renowned as a fibre rigging core material and proven its remarkable longevity.

Specifications:

  • Excellent strength & modulus
  • Good flame resistance
  • Excellent thermal stability
  • Excellent creep resistance
  • Good chemical resistance

Our most resistant performer

Aramide

Our strongest performer

Carbon

Aramid fibre is a man-made organic polymer produced by spinning a solid fibre from a liquid chemical blend.

The bright yellow filaments can have a range of properties, but all of them have high strength and low-density resulting in very high specific strength.

Specifications

  • Good strength-to-weight ratio
  • Low creep of 0,20%
  • Good fatigue life
  • Low elongation
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Non-conductive

One of the strongest fibres SmartRigging uses is Carbon. Carbon has not only a weight advantage and great rigidity but only a high level of strength.

It functions on the highest level, even at the smallest diameter and lightweight. The strength increase and weight reduction offer you remarkable advantages concerning easier handling, increased safety and faster operations.

Specifications

  • Excellent strength-to-weight ratio
  • Zero creep
  • Excellent fatigue life
  • Very low elongation
  • Good chemical resistance
