DSM Protective Materials is the inventor and manufacturer of Dyneema®, the world’s strongest fiber™. Dyneema® is a polyethylene fiber that offers maximum strength combined with minimum weight. Dyneema® fiber floats on water and is extremely durable and resistant to moisture, UV light and chemicals. The applications are therefore more or less unlimited.

Dyneema® is 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. In addition, Dyneema® is available as unidirectional sheet (UD) and protective textile for use against ballistic threats.

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.

All applications with Dyneema® benefit from its unique combination of light weight and high protective ability. With the introduction of Dyneema® Force Multiplier Technology, where breakthroughs in polymer science, ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMwPE) fiber technology and unique uni-directional engineering are combined, up to 25 percent higher ballistic protection is delivered while reducing weight by up to 30 percent.

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