Combat Engineer Dyneema® Thread

Regular price $3.89

 Who wouldn’t want thread that will hold 40 pounds and is easy to carry, including our Uncle Sam? When Uncle Sam ordered Dyneema® Thread for his Combat Engineers, his EOD people wanted some too. We had more produced, and now we have some extras, fresh from the mill.

Specs: 50 Feet, 0.288mm thick on a dispenser roll with thread cutter. (Don’t let the thin size of this thread fool you, you must have a tool to cut this thread.)

The dispenser is compact and resembles a small dental floss box with a removable roll. Other than the box, there is no similarity to dental floss.

 

Why Dyneema®  Combat Engineer Thread?

  • Resistance chemicals
  • Low density
  • Invisible to ultra-violet light sources and thermal imaging devices
  • Floats on water
  • Smooth to the touch
  • Fire resistant and self-extinguishing
  • Can withstand extreme cold and hot temperatures
  • Biologically inert (doesn't cause a reaction to the human body)
  • Sonic velocity and acoustic impedance near that of water
  • High electrical resistance
  • Elongation at break is low, energy needed to break is high
  • Very high strength (15X stronger than steel)

On a weight-for-weight basis, Dyneema® is 15 times stronger than steel and is 40 percent stronger than most aramid fibers.

Strong and contained

I've used fishing line and dental floss for expedient field repairs. Now i can throw these containers of thread in my packs.

Small but mighty

I have ordered at lest five of these. Great for EDC. When people see it they may think it’s dental floss but this cord is very strong! Don’t try and break it with your hands or teeth, you’ll just cut yourself bad. Has to be cut with a cutting tool ( one is mounted on container). Great for repair jobs.

Easy to carry cordage

I’ve carried dental floss for years as small cordage for any kind of repairs or fixes in the field. I imagine this is tougher, and it’s just as easy to carry.

Solid addition to backpacking kit

Purchased as a replacement for the standard dental floss in a backpacking/camp repair kit. The dyneema thread is quality and strong, extremely light, though the dispenser is a little iffy. It's a snap-together case and frequently allows the thread to drift and get stuck in the seam between the two halves of the case. If desired, you can easily split it and simply carry the spool though. Carry a needle with a slightly larger eye, the thread is woven and tends to unravel a bit when cut, and it can be difficult to hand-thread a smaller needle.
