DSM boosts Dyneema

Department: Business | Collection: Sustainability

DSM has earmarked up to $450 million to increase production capacity for its Dyneema ultrastrong polyethylene fiber and sheet, mostly in the U.S. According to DSM, Dyneema sales have increased by more than 15% annually in recent years, and the company expects growth to accelerate. The investment program, the biggest since the start of large-scale production of the material, will yield a "significant increase" in capacity over the next two to three years, DSM says.
