Overview

Shockguard

Shockguard is a premium shockcord with a braided cover made from 100% black Dyneema® SK75 fibre, which provides ultimate abrasion resistance. The Dyneema® also has less friction than a conventional shockcord which provides a more even stretch, especially when used in purchase systems on racing dinghies.

Applications

General Purpose

General Purpose ropes can be used for many different applications on board, the useful ropes are great to have as spares in case of an emergency.

Material

Dyneema®

Dyneema®, the world’s strongest fiber™, is respected as the premium brand for Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMwPE). We offer many ropes produced using Dyneema® fibres including single braids and double braids. We use Dyneema® SK99, Dyneema® SK78 and Dyneema® DM20 fibres to produce our ropes. These different types of Dyneema® fibre are used to produce ropes for specific applications.       

Rubber

Rubber is harvested mainly in the form of the latex from the rubber tree or others. The latex is a sticky, milky colloid drawn off by making incisions in the bark and collecting the fluid in vessels in a process called “tapping”. The latex then is refined into rubber that is ready for commercial processing.
