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 Avient’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.
