Dyneema® can be incorporated in fabrics to meet demanding specifications in a wide range of applications. The exceptional strength and light weight of Dyneema® fibres allow for the manufacturing of ropes with very special characteristics. Successful applications include mooring and towing lines, offshore positioning ropes, yachting lines, commercial fishing ropes and roundslings and arborist lines. The Dyneema® grades used for ropes are SK60, SK65, SK75 and SK78. 

The strength of Dyneema® results in a smaller twine diameter and therefore in lighter, stronger, and more efficient nets. Successful applications of Dyneema® in netting include trawl nets, aquaculture nets, and purse seine nets used in commercial fishing industry, safety nets used in the construction industry, as well as cargo nets used in the transport/logistic sector. The Dyneema® grades used for nets are typically SK62 and SK75.
