When folding the laminate into a carton it will get permanent folding marks that don't affect the technical properties. If you wish to receive the material without folding marks, please choose "shipping on the roll" during checkout. DCF is still folded all 9m during production so those marks can't be avoided.
Cuben fiber has a new name: "Dyneema® Composite Fabric"! The material is the same as before, but besides the new name we can now offer it as a distributor for DSM in far more styles and colours and at much better conditions!
Dyneema® Composite Fabrics is a performance laminate, that was originally invented for high-end cruising sails. The concept is well known in the sailing-industry: Strong fibers are being laminated between two carriers. What makes DCF special are the ultra-strong Dyneema®-fibres that are used. Dyneema® combines extremely high tear-strength with ultralight weight. Not without reason it is called "The world's strongest fiber"! Due to the unique properties of the fibers, DCF is far more tear-resistant than other fabrics of the same weight, it is highly waterproof, doesn't stretch, is resistant to folding, doesn't soak water, is UV- and chemical-resistant. The application range is determined by the amount of Dyneema®-fibers and various carrier materials that are used. The standard Dyneema® Composite Fabrics have a smooth Polyester-film on each side that makes it highly waterproof and can be easily glued. So-called HYBRIDs widen the application range by using different additional layers like woven fabrics, membranes or glues to optimize it for special applications like backpacks or breathable garments.
This style CTB1B3-1.0/H2 I is manufactured with one layer of ultra-breathable and waterproof Ventile ePTFE-membrane on the inside. This results in one of the lightest materials for waterproof rainjackets and -pants currently available. Due to the extremely light weight and the minimized material thickness Dyneema® Composite Fabric CTB1B3-1.0/H2 I has a very high wearing comfort.
Processing: Dyneema® Composite Fabric is very lightweight and tear-resistant but also very thin. Hence it is prone to abrasion and should be handled with care. Due to the compact construction, it is very easy to work with DCF. It can be easily folded, doesn't stretch or fray and can be easily glued. But please see the recommendations for cutting. For the versions with two film-layers like CTB1B3-1.0/H2 I we recommend gluing for the seams. The seam can also be sewn additionally. But to prevent the laminate to be perforated, the stitching distance should not be less than 3mm. We recommend to apply an extra tape for reinforcements and seam-sealing on sewn seams. We offer several adhesive tapes for gluing Dyneema® Composite Fabric.
Cutting: Dyneema®-threads are hard to cut. We recommend micro-serrated scissors to prevent slipping of the fabric during cutting. Heat-cutting with a heat-cutter is also possible.
Construction: Dyneema® Composite Fabric CTB1B3-1.0/H2 I consist of cross- and lengthwise Dyneema®-treads that are heatpressed and glued between a layer of a transparent polyester-film and a thin, highly breathable and waterproof Ventile ePTFE-membrane. The result is a permanently bonded, milky/half-transparent, waterproof laminate with a slightly structured, but smooth surface. Regular folding whitens and softens the fabric which does not affect the technical properties.
