Shipping info

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.

Product information

Dyneema® Composite Fabric CT1E.08, 18g/sqm

The colour dark olive is available as a standard colour. We will try to keep this colour reliably in stock and reorder regularly. All other colours we can only offer irregularly in small quantities.

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 CT1E.08 is a classic allround DCF-style, the inside and outside has a smooth, transparent polyester-film. The ultra-tear resistant Dyneema® between the two layers make it extremely durable for its weight. With the weight of 18g/sqm it is a very good lightweight option for tarps, tents and lavuus.

Bio Based Dyneema® is used for this article. In Bio Based Dyneema®, residues from the wood and pulp industry are mixed with fossil raw materials during the manufacturing process. Due to the proportion of renewable raw materials, the ethylene produced has a significantly better CO2 balance than conventional HMPE. The technical properties of Bio Based Dyneema® are identical to conventional Dyneema®. Bio Base Dyneema® is ISCC-certified.

Short info

Range of Application: Tarp/Tent
Properties: inelastic, ultralight, waterproof (more than 5000mm)
Stock Options: Standard article
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. For the versions with two film-layers like CT1E.08 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 applying an extra tape for reinforcements on sewn seams. We offer several adhesive tapes for gluing Dyneema® Composite Fabric.
Cutting: We recommend micro-serrated scissors when cutting fabrics with Dyneema®. Scissors with normal cutting blades cut this material poorly and quickly become blunt. Heat-cutting with a heat-cutter is also possible.
Construction: Dyneema® Composite Fabric CT1E.08 consists of cross- and lengthwise Dyneema®-treads that are pressed and glued between two layers of a transparent polyester-film. The result is a permanently bonded, 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.
Repairing: The strong Dyneema®-fibers prevent small damages to spread and they can easily be repaired with a self-adhesive patch of DCF-repairtape.
Colours: Only the coloured Dyneema®-threads give the fabric the colour. Since the threads do not cover the whole surface, all colours remain in a light tone and the fabric stays semi-transparent.
Please note: Due to it's unique production process, DCF can contain stains, stripes, dots, variations in weaving or slight folding marks. This is more visible in the coloured versions. Since this doesn't affect the technical properties, this is not an error.
Export regulations: Dyneema Composite Fabrics are held together by a proprietary polymer matrix. The fabric is subject to the regulations of the United States Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) and is classified Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) 1C990. At the date of this end-user statement, these fabrics, or final items containing these fabrics are not allowed to be (re)exported to North Korea, Syria, Iran, Cuba and Sudan. In addition, these items are restricted from being supplied for military end-use to Russia, Venezuela and China. Violation of these restrictions may lead to criminal prosecution under United States Law.

Das beste Tarp-Material, das es gibt. Auch das teuerste... Schneiden mit einem alten 30W-Lötkolben ist problemlos, aber achtung: Holzleiste als Lineal benützen und einen festen Karton als Unterlage, ja nichts metallisches, weil sonst die Wärme abgeleitet wird, und kein Kunststoff, weil der auch schmelzen würde. Zügig schneiden, sonst gibt's ein Loch...
