DSM Dyneema acquires Cubic Tech
Cubic Tech Corporation has specialized for more than 23 years in the custom design, development and production of innovative high performance ultra-lightweight flexible laminates and fabrics (known as cuben fiber)— most of them based on Dyneema®.
Cuben Fiber is the original company and product name that was sold to North Sails for the use in sailcloth. Outside of sailcloth the company was restarted as Cubic Tech Corporation. Even though, Cubic Tech promoted their product portfolio under the name CTF3, the industry continued to use Cuben Fiber as a reference to Cubic Tech’s product portfolio.
By acquiring Cubic Tech, DSM Dyneema will further extend the brand into high-performance fabrics, reinforcing the position as one of the leading brands in ultra-high performance materials. Going forward, Cubic Tech’s product portfolio will be integrated into the Dyneema® brand family and referred to as Dyneema® Composite fabrics.
