Liros D-Pro Static is manufactured using the latest Dyneema DM20 fibre. This fibre is not quite as strong as SK99 but exhibits near zero creep (elongation over time). Liros D-Pro static is manufactured with in a 12 strand construction then finished using the Liros Heat stretch system to maximise the performance of the line. This line is ideal for applications where zero creep is required such as steering lines and standing rigging.
Lines like D-Pro Static are making the possibility of Fibre rigging more accessible to the market. This cost effective alternative to wire is specified by matching the stretch of the replacement cable to the working stretch of the stainless steel wire. This typically means that fibre rigging is slightly bigger than wire but still saves a lot of weight aloft. By matching the stretch factor, the new rigging will be anywhere between 2 and 5 times stronger than the stainless steel rig it replaces. Never specify a rig by matching breaking strains as this will result in a stretchy rig. Available with a full range of spliced finishes from the Jimmy Green custom system or in longer lengths on a reel. CUSTON BUILD INSTRUCTIONS - FIBRE RIGGING
