The fabric is molecular engineered to offer game-changing properties to a range of industries.

Dyneema® exhibits the highest impact strength of any thermoplastic. Its ultra-strength fibers have a low elongation at break, are highly abrasion resistant, and the thermoplastic even conducts heat.

The fabric is made from Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE). The engineered thermoplastic has an unparalleled strength to weight ratio and is being used in everything from personal protection equipment (PPE) such as cut resistant gloves to outdoor sports equipment and emergency medical products.
