UHMWPE fibre from DSM Dyneema is produced in Heerlen, Netherlands
DSM Dyneema is the inventor and manufacturer of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) fibre branded as Dyneema®, the world’s strongest fibre. Dyneema® offers maximum strength combined with minimum weight.
It is up to 15 times stronger than quality steel and up to 40% stronger than aramid fibres, both on weight for weight basis. Dyneema® fibre floats on water and is extremely durable and resistant to moisture, UV light and chemicals.
The applications are therefore more or less unlimited. Dyneema® is an important component in ropes, cables and nets in the fishing, shipping and offshore industries. Dyneema® is also used in safety gloves for the metalworking industry and in fine yarns for applications in sporting goods and the medical sector. In addition, Dyneema® is also used in bullet-resistant armour and clothing for police and military personnel.
Hexagonal Tulle and Bobbinet Mesh Weaving
From the accepted definition, there is some overlap between Bobbinet and Tulle with many people unaware of the difference.
Often a cotton mesh that may be very thin, seemingly transparent or can be fairly coarse and opaque, depending on the yarn count used in the weaving of it.
A very fine, strong but supple hexagonal mesh made from silk, nylon, or polyester yarns, and though very similar to Bobbinet it is much lighter in weight and the crème de la crème used in bridal veils.
