Dyneema Slings

Click to enlarge

Dyneema webbing is the preferred material for manufacturing lightweight sewn slings for rock climbing and mountaineering. We stock it in the 13mm width, which is durable and facilitates sewing.
  • Lightweight and very strong
  • Webbing imported from the Czech Republic, sewn in New Zealand
  • Complies with EN 566
  • Colours may vary in availability - usually yellow, orange, grey or black
  • Minimum strength 22kN

Dyneema is the DSM brand name for a modern fibre called UHMWPE, a high-tenacity type of polyethylene. It has extremely high tensile strength - about twice that of nylon, and a lower specific gravity than water (it floats).

Negative properties in a climbing context are that it has extremely low elongation and a low melting point (about 150 C).

It it difficult to dye and so is usually white or a dull grey. The colour in Dyneema products generally comes from nylon yarns that are woven in with it to improve the integrity of the weave.
