The raw material for Dyneema is Polyethylene which is changed
on a molecular basis and in addition is stretched in one direction. These
stretched molecule chains increase the breaking load and decrease the
elongation. Therefore, Dyneema has the lowest stretch at break of all
synthetic fibers. Dyneema single braid lines are frequenly used as cascade lines in purchase systems, dinghy traveler and outhaul lines, vang systems, halyards and cunninghams. Single Braid Dyneema lines are also used in keelboat control lines, lifelines and in some standing rigging applications.
