The secret to Dyneema® UD’s lightweight performance

Dyneema® UD material is a composite, unidirectional (UD) laminate that offers excellent energy absorption and enhanced protection in a lightweight solution. Starting with Dyneema® fiber as the base, the fibers are layered in a crisscross pattern at 0 and 90 degrees, allowing more even and rapid distribution of energy.

The performance characteristics of Dyneema® UD make it ideal for a variety of applications, including soft and hard armor ballistics to protect against today’s advanced and emerging threats for law enforcement, first responders and military service personnel.
