Compacted (Dyform)

standing-rigging-DyformDyform (Now Called Compacted) is high-tech, low stretch wire rigging, which features more than a 30% increase in breaking strength over traditional 1×19 wire, and 25% less stretch. It is approved for use with conventional swage and swageless fittings. The cross section shows how the specially shaped wires fill a greater proportion of the strand cross section. ┬áCompacted wire is also the best alternative when replacing rod rigging with wire.

Rigworks stocks the most popular sizes including but not limited to:

  • 2.5mm
  • 3mm
  • 5mm (Etchells)

Rigworks correctly swages fittings on to Compacted wire using Diamond Dust. Rigworks also carries metric sized swage fittings for a correct swaged fit.
