Spectra / Dyneema / Amsteel Ropes and Lines by Continental Western

High Strength RopePlasma, Spectra, Dyneema and Amsteel are HMPE, High-modulus polyethylene fibers produced by gel-spinning ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE). These fibers are chemically inert, and independent studies have confirmed that Dyneema performs well in dry, wet, salty and humid conditions, as well as other situations where chemicals are present. Strong resistance to photo degradation when exposed to UV light. The high UV resistance of the fiber ensures continuing high performance.
