Materials and Properties :
Nylon slings are common throughout the USA as a general-purpose synthetic sling that provides a degree of resistance to certain alkalis but are strictly not for use with acids and bleaching agents.
Polyester slings are industry-standard throughout many countries and are not noticeably affected by these compounds: water (this includes the sea, soaps, synthetic detergents and hydrocarbons.
Dyneema is the world's strongest fiber, offering extremely high cut resistance, low weight, and enormous working load limits. its ability to float on the water makes our Dyneema slings the ultimate offshore synthetic rigging.
