Dyneema fiber is suitable for a wide variety of engineered yarns, spun yarns or a combination of both. Dyneema is the HPPE-fiber most suitable for spun yarn manufacturing, be it pure Dyneema or blends with polyamide and polyester. Dyneema is also used extensively in engineered yarns, especially in combination with fiber glass and steel fiber. These combinations achieve the highest level of cut resistance while preserving comfort and sensitivity. Furthermore Dyneema has established an outstanding reputation for its suitability for use in coated gloves in combination with strech yarns like Lycra®.
