Dyneema - 100 kg. For running rigging, white, braided. 0.8 mm dia, 100 kg breaking strain, 20 metres.

Use with 057B bowsies. Dyneema does not melt so you cannot seal the end of the line or a knot by using a flame or soldering iron. Instead cut Dyneema with very sharp scissors to ensure a clean cut. Alternatively use a thin cyanoacrylate glue to stiffen the line where it is to be cut and use a sharp cutting knife (we use snap off blades to ensure a sharp edge) on a cutting mat to make a clean cut at an acute angle to the line. This provides a neat needle like point that can be threaded through bowsies and other fittings.

Use a figure of eight, stopper or stevedore knot with bowsies. Use a loop with an overhand knot or a bowline with hooks. Seal knots with a spot of cyanoactrylate glue.
