Avient is the inventor and manufacturer of Dyneema®, the world’s strongest fiber™. Dyneema®, a polyethylene fiber that offers maximum strength combined with minimum weight and which is extremely durable and resistant to moisture, UV light and chemicals, is the leading ballistic material inside body armor that enables performance and protection through a patented and backwards-integrated manufacturing process. With one of the highest strength-to-weight ratios of any material on Earth, Dyneema® has been trusted for more than 30 years in countless end-use applications and industries where performance is critical.


Key applications for Dyneema® in defense and law enforcement range from bullet-resistant vests, inserts and helmets for police and military personnel to anti-ballistic protection for military and police vehicles, helicopters and vessels. The inherent strength of Dyneema® means that the same levels of ballistic protection can be met using less material. Its lightweight strength provides countless benefits to the end user, from comfort to long-term wearability, without compromising on protection.

Dyneema® is also an important component in ropes, cables, synthetic chains and nets in the fishing, shipping and offshore industries. Dyneema® is also used in safety gloves for the metalworking industry and in fine yarns for applications in sporting goods and the medical sector.

It doesn’t matter, until it does.
Never compromise on protection.
