Woven covers made with Dyneema® yarn provide optimal protection for slings, achieving the highest cut and abrasion resistance. Dyneema® is a synthetic fiber that safeguards your load by protecting the sling simultaneously. This sling is specifically designed for use on loads with sharp edges.
Dyneema® fibers are produced from polyethylene and do not contain any aromatic rings nor any amide, hydroxylic or other chemical groups that are susceptible to be attacked by aggressive agents. The result is a highly crystalline fiber with excellent resistance to water, moisture, most chemicals, UV light and microorganisms.
Dyneema® fibers can absorb extremely high amounts of energy. This property is utilized in ballistic protection products. The fiber is also used in other items such as cut-resistant gloves, motorcycle helmets, and to enhance the impact strength of laminated boat hulls. In these applications, not only the high toughness is utilized but also the high energy absorption.
