Dyneema is a highly advanced fiber based on a polyethylene with an ultra high molecular weight. It is a fiber 15 times stronger than steel, which allows to create fabrics with a high resistance to cutting.
On the other hand, the fabrics manufactured with Dyneema are much lighter than those of the competition.
How it works
Dyneema multifilament gel yarn, is made of high molecular weight polyethylene that provides great resistance to the fabric.
On the other hand, the Dyneema fibers are placed in a criss-cross orientation (0.90 °), that is, some cross over each other to provide an absorption of energy.
The result is a lightweight, low profile and flexible material that distributes the impact throughout the fiber faster than conventional.
Fabrics made with Dyneema can be used for the EPI sector, such as t-shirts, pants and cut resistant gloves or bulletproof vests.
