Kevlar with a plastic jacket to resist UV rays is sold as Phillystran. It's more expensive than metal. You'd use it when steel guy wire will change the performance of the antenna system.

A cheaper alternative that's OK with UV is black dacron rope. http://www.hamcity.com/store/pc/view...idCategory=392
