Dyneema® fabrics are available as composites, denim, knits, wovens and hybrid fabrics for composite reinforcements. Molecular engineering for the street, stadium, road, backcountry, factory, and more. Dyneema® fabrics make products lighter without compromising on strength and durability. It makes products significantly stronger without compromising on comfort.
30% lighter than nylon and polyester. 45% lighter than aramid
15x stronger than steel (weight per weight ratio)
UV and water resistant. Abrasion and tear resistant
Dyneema® Composite Fabrics take strength and durability to new highs. Dyneema® Composites dramatically increase tear, puncture, and abrasion performance dramatically compared with 500D nylon, while cutting weight and reducing bulk. They can also be tailored and optimized for strength, stretch, and weight, and for thickness overall and at specific points or along predetermined load paths. The customizable properties of these flexible composite fabrics allow them to be used in numerous applications and industries, ranging from outdoor sports equipment to emergency medical products.
In addition to traditional woven fabric, Dyneema® is also available as a denim. This comes in two forms: as a filament yarn for reinforcement, or with Dyneema® blended into the cotton. Used as a filament reinforcement, denim with Dyneema® creates much stronger and more durable jeans.
Blending it into the cotton creates a lighter, more comfortable pair of jeans with no sacrifices in strength or durability. The garment performance can be tailored to its intended use - fashion, action sports, or motorcycle wear - by adjusting the amount of Dyneema® fiber it contains.
Rigid and stretch woven fabrics with Dyneema® are ideal for making lightweight but strong outdoor apparel, footwear, and accessories. A broad portfolio of constructions using Dyneema® in the warp, weft or both are available with weight options spanning from 25 gr/m2 to 500 gr/m2 and more. Coloring is possible using colored companion fibers. Woven fabrics with Dyneema® can also be coated, plus the coating and underlying fabric can be tailored to specific customer specifications.
Knitted fabrics with Dyneema® are available in various circular and warp knits that are tailored to the specific needs of the final application. Knitted fabrics with Dyneema® are easy to combine with other synthetic or natural yarns.
Single jersey, double jersey, terry, and interlock knit fabrics are all possible, with or without elastomeric yarn. Ideal for shirts and active sportswear. There are also special Raschel warp knit fabrics with Dyneema® available in net constructions for use in liners and athletic footwear.
Carbon with Dyneema® is a hybrid of pure carbon and Dyneema® fiber. Carbon fiber is strong, light, and stiff, but it’s also prone to vibration and shattering. Dyneema® is strong and light – plus it damps vibration and resists shattering. Combine carbon fiber with Dyneema® fiber and you can engineer composites that handle impact forces 50% to 100% better than carbon alone. Carbon with Dyneema® is more ductile and can be shatterproof, whereas pure carbon shatters under excessive impact.
