The Dyneema® project: world’s strongest, lightest fiber set to impact apparel industry

Urmond, NL, 28 Jul 2015 12:00 CEST

World’s strongest, lightest fiber is becoming more widely available to the apparel market through a carefully curated innovations program for premium brands: The Dyneema® Project.
The Dyneema® Project

Dyneema is currently being used to moor oil rigs, sail ships, lift buildings, stop bullets and repair humans. Over the past 25 years, the exceptional properties of Dyneema have been applied to high stake industries. In other words, this versatile material has withstood the test of wear-and-tear under the most challenging of conditions.

Recently DSM Dyneema has developed a whole range of ultra-lightweight and strong flexible fabrics for  sportswear, denim and outdoor amongst others. With the acquisition of Cubic Tech in May 2015, the company further extends the Dyneema brand into high-performance fabrics, and reinforces the position of Dyneema as one of the leading brands of ultra-high performance materials.

The Dyneema Project will showcase how the apparel industry can further use these Dyneema materials to make comfortable fabrics that are stronger, lighter, smarter and more durable than anything currently available. This elite program will collaborate with trailblazers, game changers and innovators in apparel – cutting-edge brands and state-of-the-art mills who are pushing the envelope of design and vision.
