The Dyneema® brand

Dyneema® is used in countless applications where performance is critical, and failure is simply not an option. In fact, many of these applications would not be possible to design or engineer without Dyneema®. Our brand success is enabled by DSM’s core competencies and continued investment in Innovation, Collaboration and Sustainability.

Innovation

Dyneema® is born from science. As the inventor and manufacturer of the world’s strongest fiber™, we continue to innovate Dyneema® into a performance-leading portfolio of materials comprised of fiber, fabric and unidirectional sheets.  
 

 

Collaboration

We believe enduring success is achieved through collaboration, and are proud of our long-term partnerships with customers, as well as the IP protected Dyneema® technology platforms we’ve created together. From start-ups to global industry leaders, we invest in helping our customers develop the next generation of high-performance solutions.

Sustainability

We protect people and the environment they live in. By 2030, we’ll protect 40 million people, we’ll use at least 60% bio-based feedstock and we’ll power all of our manufacturing facilities with renewable electricity.

Doing well by doing good

A short decade ago the general belief was that as a company you either focused on driving profit or safeguarding the planet - but not both. In the intervening years we’ve proved again and again here at DSM that it really is possible to do well by doing good. After all, why achieve commercial success in a world that fails?

It’s a belief that every one of our 23,000 people worldwide holds dear - and delivers on each and every day across the fields of Nutrition & Health, Climate & Energy and Resources & Circularity.

In fact, we’re so passionate about building a better world that our company strategy is aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (five in particular) that were agreed at the United Nations’ Paris Agreement in 2015.
