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.  Compacted 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.
