The Dyneema® Project: world's strongest, lightest fiber set to impact apparel industry

The Netherlands, 28 July 2015

World’s strongest, lightest fiber is becoming more widely available to the apparel market through a carefully curated innovations program for premium brands: The Dyneema® Project.

Dyneema® is currently being used to moor oil rigs, sail ships, lift buildings, stop bullets and repair humans. Over the past 25 years, the exceptional properties of Dyneema® have been applied to high stake industries. In other words, this versatile material has withstood the test of wear-and-tear under the most challenging of conditions.

Recently DSM Dyneema has developed a whole range of ultra-lightweight and strong flexible fabrics for amongst others sportswear, denim and outdoor. With the acquisition of Cubic Tech in May 2015, the company further extends the Dyneema® brand into high-performance fabrics, and reinforces the position of Dyneema® as one of the leading brands of ultra-high performance materials.

The Dyneema® Project will showcase how the apparel industry can further use these Dyneema® materials to make comfortable fabrics that are stronger, lighter, smarter and more durable than anything currently available. This elite program will collaborate with trailblazers, game changers and innovators in apparel – cutting-edge brands and state-of-the-art mills who are pushing the envelope of design and vision.
