HMPE is the chemical name for High Modulus Polyethylene an increasingly popular material used to make different types of rope. HMPE is also known as UltraHigh Molecular Weight PolyEthylene (UHMWPE) offering a range of performance and durability properties depending on grade and consistency of the fiber make up. HMPE Rope is the most forgiving high-modulus fiber rope, giving better sheave-cycling capabilities than other high-tech fibers. HMPE Rope has zero water absorption (it floats) and maintains its flexibility even in freezing conditions.
We source our HMPE Ropes from reputable manufactures so you are assured that:

Dyneema® offers maximum strength with minimum weight. This makes the number of possible applications virtually unlimited.
Dyneema® fiber is produced in a patented gel spinning process in which the fibers are drawn, heated, elongated, and cooled. Stretching and spinning leads to molecular alignment, high crystallization, and low density. Dyneema® has extremely long molecular chains that transfer load more effectively to the polymer backbone. So it’s stronger at the same weight or lighter at the same strength than alternatives.
Dyneema® fiber is 15x stronger than steel at the same weight, with a tensile strength up to 43 cN/dtex. As well as its extraordinary strength, Dyneema® excels in cut and abrasion resistance and has a high resistance to chemicals and UV. Dyneema® fiber is so light that it floats on water and furthermore has a very high modulus (resistance against deformation).
