Fabrics for the great outdoors

Our flexible composite fabrics are the ultimate in lightweight strength and water resistance. Found in tents, packs and bags. Adding Dyneema® to woven fabrics supports the creation of strong, durable apparel, backpacks, bags, luggage and footwear. Mesh fabrics made with Dyneema® also have outstanding breathability and abrasion resistance, as well as ultra-low weight. Knitted fabrics made with Dyneema® are ideal for protective apparel and sportswear due to their exceptional abrasion, cut, and tear resistance as well as being ultra-thin and comfortable.

Versatility for custom design

We understand that top performance doesn’t come easy – if it did, everyone would be doing it. But we’ve got the material science expertise to support brands on their journey to create lighter, stronger, and more resilient gear for life’s great adventures.

Whether they’re harnessing our Dyneema® Composite Fabrics or incorporating Dyneema® fiber into much-loved existing materials, Dyneema® elevates performance to unprecedented levels.

Supporting sustainable innovation

Versatility isn’t the full story, either. Outdoor gear designers are also drawn to Dyneema® because it’s the most sustainable high-performance fiber on the market.

Bio-based Dyneema® fiber used in consumer products has a 90% lower carbon footprint than generic HMPE fiber. And because articles made with Dyneema® have such excellent durability and reliability, they last longer and reduce material usage over time.

In addition, 100% of the electricity used in our manufacturing comes from renewable sources.

All these efforts add up to a fiber whose carbon footprint per unit of strength is lower than any other – a vital factor for brands looking to meet growing consumer demands for sustainable products.

We’ve taken the puffer jacket – traditionally one of the weakest and most delicate pieces of clothing you can buy – and rebuilt it from the strongest fiber ever made. The material we’ve used is so tough that, in early tests, it broke the machines that were meant to be testing them! When we went to build the toughest puffer jacket ever created, there was only ever one material we could use.

When we set out to create the norda™ 001, our mission was to design an ultra-strong, durable, and high-performance trail running shoe – and do it as sustainably as possible. To achieve that goal, we had to look beyond the standard materials used by the footwear industry. We realized the properties of bio-based Dyneema® fiber beat everything available today.
