Learn more about composites with Dyneema®, woven with Dyneema®, knits with Dyneema® and Dyneema® in denim.
Flexible composite fabrics from oriented fiber layers and high performance films or surface coatings: Multiple oriented fiber layers may be positioned at any angle having an unlimited range of fiber areal weights and unlimited fiber choices and combinations. Composite may be tailored and optimized for strength, stretch properties, weight, and minimum thickness, including specific locations or along predetermined load paths. Flexible composites constructed from high modulus fibers have predictable and linear properties for engineering designs.
Dyneema® ultra-lightweight fiber is up to 15 times stronger than steel and up to 40-percent stronger than aramid fiber weight for weight. Properties of Dyneema® enhance all aspects of classic denim work wear: durability, toughness, protection and comfort. By blending Dyneema® with naturals like cotton, it will outperform your typical jeans and jacket combo up to 7 times. The colour degrades, but the performances remains intact. It is the ideal fabric for extreme heavy duty applications or extreme sports.
Both Circular knit and Warp knit fabrics can be tailored to the specific needs of the final application. Single Jersey, Double Jersey, Terry fabrics and Interlock constructions are possible with different Dyneema® contents, with or without elastomeric yarn. Special Raschel Warpknit fabrics with Dyneema® are available in net constructions used for liners and athletic footwear. Typically Dyneema® yarns can be combined with synthetic yarns (e.g Nylon. Polyester) or with natural yarns like cotton or wool.
Woven fabric constructions available with weights ranging from 25 gr/m2 up to 500 gr/m2 and above. Dyneema® can be used separately in either the warp, weft or, together in both directions. Rigid or stretch fabrics with elongations up to 120% in warp and weft directions. Color effects can be achieved by combining Dyneema® with colored companion fibers or by using Black Dyneema®. Used in technical woven fabrics, seen in apparel and accessories, Dyneema® can also be added either as a filament reinforcement yarn or blended in with cotton.
