Checking for Price and Availability
AS-90 brings high-tech performance to a new level through the use of Dyneema® SK-90, the latest in fiber technology.
It is one of the most advanced high strength, low stretch ropes available.
It exhibits a 12% increase in strength and greater linear elastic stiffness - less elongation with an increasing load - when compared with other Dyneema fiber lines.
AS-90 maintains the same lightweight, durable, and easy handling characteristics that lines made with Dyneema are known for.
With Samson's state-of-the-art AS-90, you’ll have precise trim control at the higher loads encoutered in the extreme racing conditions.

• Ideal for use as halyards, genoa sheets, spinnaker sheets, mainsheets, running backs, and control lines
• Much lighter than wire rope, and 30 - 40% lighter than Aramid ropes of the same strength
• Samson's strongest rope, and virtually tied for lowest stretch
• Elongation when loaded at 30% of breaking strength is less than 1%
• Constructed with Dyneema® SK-90 HMPE (high molecular weight polyethylene) fiber
• 12-Strand hollow braid construction - available in white, only
• Splicing technique: full-bury 12-strand splice
• Strengths in specification table are for spliced lines
• Sold by the foot

Heavy on the technical side...

Dynema® is the Dutch company DSM Dyneema's brand of UHMWPE (Ultra High Molecular Weight PolyEthylene fiber), a long chain, high strength, oriented strand, synthetic fiber with very high strength as well as high abrasion resistance.
This fiber is also known as HMPE (High Modulus PolyEthylene).
Dyneema is available in a number of formulations, SK-60, SK-75, SK-78, SK-90, etc. Each progressively stronger and more expensive.

Honeywell International produces a similar UHMWPE fiber, marketed as Spectra®
