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 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 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.
The style CT9HK.18/wov6 is a so-called HYBRID DCF fabric since it is equipped with an additional polyester fabric on the outside. This significantly enhances the abrasion-resistance and gives the laminate a more textile appearance. On the inside it has the typical thin, transparent polyester film that makes it waterproof and can be easily glued. The super-strong Dyneema®-fibers between the two layers give it an extremely high tear-resistance for its weight. With 170g/sqm this version is the "heavyweight"-version of the HYBRIDs. The 150den polyester on the outside give the fabric a high abrasion resistance. Perfect for lightweight and durable backpacks, bags, pouches and accessories.
Processing: Due to the film on the inside and the fabric on the outside Dyneema® Composite Fabric HYBRIDs can be either sewn or glued. 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. To seal seams and enhance seam strength you can apply a DCF repair tape to the inside of the seam.
Cutting: The super-strong 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 HYBRIDs consists of cross- and lengthwise Dyneema®-treads that are pressed and glued between a layer of transparent polyester-film and a thin polyester-fabric. The result is a permanently bonded, waterproof laminate with a textile, but smooth surface. Regular folding whitens and softens the fabric which does not affect the technical properties.
