Dyneema® is ultra high molecular weight polyethylene fibres made by DSM Dyneema, which is considered the world strongest fibre and as reliable as steel but with 15% the weight.
Dyneema® has produced a new synthetic textile chains as a replacement for the normal metal chains. The new chains are made from layers of narrow woven fabrics from Dyneema® fibres reducing the weight up to 85% from the comparable steel link chains and significantly stronger at the same diameter. The lighter weight chains allow better handle and increase in productivity.
The Dyneema® chains are also considered safer as they don’t recoil or whip back the way steal chains do. This is one of many positive properties of using textiles alternative materials. Other properties include quiet, causing less damage to the cargo, nonconductive, greener, reduce mechanical damage to equipments.
As the fibres specific weight is less than 1.0 g/cm3, the chains will float on the water. It has 4% elongation, which means it can be used for precise tasks.
The option of using different fibre versions allows different strengths for different applications.
This chains were developed for the heavy industry such as, material handling, transportation and logistics, mining, logging.
