Racing Dyneema SK78 Melange
We are delighted to announce that the Dyneema components of our Dyneema Cruise Ropes are now made using new bio-based Dyneema® fibres. This means that for every 1 tonne of bio-based Dyneema® purchased, 5 tonnes CO2 emissions are avoided when compared to standard Dyneema® fibres. This is fantastic news and an excellent development from our friends at DSM Protective Materials.
Racing Dyneema® 78 melange covers are made using HT Polyester fibre, however the covers are braided using fewer plaits than the standard Racing Dyneema® 78 product making them easier to splice. The core, made from Dyneema® SK78 is the same as in our other Racing Dyneema® 78 products.
