Dyneema®, the world’s strongest fiber™
5 years of cooperation between Gruschwitz and DSM Dyneema
DSM Dyneema, the Dutch world market leader in UHMWPE fibers, has already established a development and distribution partnership for Central and Eastern Europe with Gruschwitz since 2011. Gruschwitz specializes in providing top-quality, customer-specific solutions in the field of technical twisted threads and yarns by means of banding, twisting, winding and coating.
Dyneema® areas of application
Dyneema® is an ultra-high molecular polyethylene fiber (UHMWPE) and combines the highest tensile strength with low weight. Measured in terms of weight, the material is 15 times more tear-resistant than high-quality steel and up to 40% more tear-resistant than aramid fibers. Dyneema® floats on water and is extremely resistant to UV light, chemicals and moisture. These special properties mean that Dyneema® can be used in a wide variety of applications.
Dyneema® fibers
Dyneema® fibers are an important component in ropes, lines, belts and nets in the fishing, shipbuilding and offshore industries. They are also used in protective gloves in metal processing as well as in fine yarns for sports articles and technical medical applications. Dyneema® special equipment for the police and the military protects personnel against shooting, stabbing and cutting injuries. Detailed information on the special properties of DSM Dyneema can be found in the enclosed data sheet.
