Dyneema is widely regarded as the world's strongest, lightest rope fibre. The non-corrosive rope is 15 times stronger than steel, yet still floats - which is why it's hugely popular in an array of different environments, whether that be as an industrial rope, or even for towing purposes.
Dyneema rope is the best rope fibre for sailing; not just for its strength characteristics either. Dyneema marine rope is chemically inert and performs well in dry, wet, salty and humid conditions, plus is UV resistant. Furthermore, as dyneema rope absorbs significantly less water, it will remain easy to handle when wet and retain its lightweight characteristics. The working stretch of the rope is also extremely low, typically around < 1%.
