Dyneema® Form Factors

Lightweight high strength in the form you want it

Dyneema® began life as a fiber. Today, there are four forms available: fiber, unidirectional sheets, tape and fabrics.

These form factors support the creation of our Technology Platforms and share these winning properties:

  • Ultra high strength versus weight (15 times stronger than steel, like for like)
  • Low elongation at break
  • High resistance to abrasion, moisture, UV radiation, and chemicals
  • Float on water
  • Highly flexible
  • High energy absorption
  • Dyneema® also shows the highest impact strength of any thermoplastic.

It doesn’t smell, doesn’t taste of anything, and isn't toxic. It is self-lubricating and its friction coefficient is lower than nylon and comparable to that of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE, Teflon) – but with better abrasion resistance. And uniquely for a thermoplastic, it can conduct heat.
