Royal DSM will increase its production capacity for Dyneema to meet the growing demand.
Royal DSM will increase its production capacity for Dyneema to meet the growing demand.

Royal DSM recently announced to increase its production capacity for Dyneema, one of the world’s strongest fibers. Strong demand for both Dyneema UD (Uni-Directional laminate) and Dyneema fiber is prompting this increase.

The global production capacity of Dyneema UD will be increased by more than 20%. 
This capacity increase will further strengthen DSM’s product leadership under the Dyneema brand.

The company is investing to install additional new 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 capacity expansion will enable DSM to serve the growing global customer demand. The growing domestic US market will be served better from DSM’s Greenville, N.C. facility.

The additional Dyneema UD and Dyneema fiber capacity will become available in the course of 2018 and be fully on stream by Q1 2019.

In addition to expanding capacity, DSM Dyneema will also further improve its carbon footprint. Applications made with Dyneema already deliver low carbon footprint for the performance specified from cradle-to-grave compared to other materials and DSM is committed to further improve this. 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.

Dyneema products are used in a broad and ever-increasing range of markets and applications in which lightweight strength is of the essence, for instance best-in-class protective ballistic vests, inserts and helmets.
