DSM Expanding Capacity for Dyneema

Invest to Increase Global Dyneema Production Capacity

The company is investing to install additional new Uni-Directional laminate (UD) technology at its plant in Heerlen, the Netherlands, and its plant in Greenville, NC, U.S. and will also make improvements to existing production lines to expand Dyneema UD and Dyneema fiber capacity, incorporating the latest technologies. The global production capacity of Dyneema UD will be increased by more than 20%.

In addition to expanding capacity, DSM Dyneema wants also further improve its carbon footprint. According to the manufacturer, applications made with Dyneema already deliver a very low carbon footprint compared to other materials. As an example, DSM’s plant in Greenville, North Carolina, already uses 100% renewable electricity.

Dyneema UD is a composite unidirectional laminate that offers excellent energy absorption and enhanced protection. It is available as a hard and soft ballistic material.
