Material:100% UHMWPE Fiber (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene) UHMWPE is known as different trade names, like Dyneema, Spectra by different manufacturers Elongation at break:4.8% Melt Point:266~277 °F / 130~136 °C safe working temperature is below 176 °F / 80 °C

Approximately ±2~3% deviation exists in measurement. Packaging:On Spool Recommended safe working strength:20% of its original strength.
Kite String, Kite Fixing / Dragging Line for Giant Kites, Show Kites, Kitesurfing
Fishing accessory line / Speargun Shooting Line
More applications to be created.
Please note!!! Cords' marked strength comes from tests under the lab environment. There are a wide variety of influential factors in practical use. For all kinds of cords, the safe working strength is around 20% of its original strength.
How to seal the end? UHMWPE doesn't melt and self-sealed like nylon or polyester. After cutting, use tape to seal the end or simptly tie a knot.
Extremely Strong in Lightest Weight - 15 times stronger than steel by weight ratio Absolutely go for 100% UHMWPE Cord when you need an ultra-light cord with high strength. 4mm paracord, 550lb strength; 4mm nylon climbing cord, 900lb strength; 4mm UHMWPE cord, that is 3960lb!
Highly Resistant to Abrasion and Wear Even after intense abrasion, UHMWPE still maintains its shape, which will ensure long service life.
Most Friendly Cord With a low coefficient of friction, UHMWPE does the least damage to gears that it is in direct contact with. Much safer operation with UHMWPE cord than steel cable
Low Elongation, Least Creep The cord has only 4.5% stretch at break, which means the long time loading will create the least creep on the cord.
Extremely low moisture absorption, high resistant to chemical, UV Just like the most vigorous warrior, UHMWPE got excellent adaption to a tough environment. It keeps its performance in extreme cold weather.
