These are for the trailblazers…

Over the last years, we looked on in amazement as Dyneema® Composite Fabrics have been applied to every possible domain – from automotive to architecture. Yet we’d like to shed light on one of the early adopters: the ultra-light movement, whose trailblazers took this remarkable material and ran with it. We created these ‘Prototypes’ to raise the bar further and hopefully inspire the next cycle of innovation…

The freedom to create

The main goal behind The Dyneema® Project’s ‘Prototypes’ is to showcase fabric innovation by creating new concepts that push the boundaries of performance. In turn, these applications are meant to inspire and spark an interest in all trailblazers who embrace experimentation and want to come up with their own creations using the new generation of Dyneema® fabrics.

Whether developed to carry, protect, transport or house, these remarkable items are also a way to test new properties such as breathability, as well as to enhance previously achieved properties by using different coatings, finishes and applications. 

In short, this project is about total creative and technical freedom. So be inspired. And don’t forget to let us know what you come up with. 

Pack a bag that’s solid inside and out

The Dyneema® Project Prototype 02 – the 30 L Ultralight Backpack – showcases experimental fabrics that are both tear-proof and weatherproof. Using a new coating, we created the visually striking CT9HW6/BLKWOV4 fabric with dual surface properties, that can be used on both the inside and outside of a pack without compromising on abrasion, resistance or durability. 

In other words, we’re now able to use the same fabric on the outside of a bag that was previously only used on the inside due to its lower abrasion resistance. A woven polyester coating on one side of the fabric results in a more traditional look, while the TPU film on the other side gives it a fresher feel. You choose what side works best for you, inside or out. 

TPU films also allow for welding instead of hotmelts for easier construction, and it means a DWR treatment is no longer required to improve water repellency and abrasion resistance. For a designer, to understand the aesthetics and scoop of this fabric’s properties is to be in a prime position to come up with new purposes and new forms.
