DSM Dyneema officially introduced Dyneema® Force Multiplier Technology, the company's newest product development program.

Dyneema® Force Multiplier Technology combines breakthroughs in polymer science, next-generation fiber technology and unique uni-directional engineering to deliver up to 25 percent higher ballistic protection while reducing weight by up to 20 percent. Here at Milipol 2013, the company is showcasing the first products for soft and hard ballistic protection applications featuring this new technology. All are manufactured at the DSM Dyneema facility in Greenville, N.C.

DSM Dyneema views adoption of next-generation material technologies as critical in addressing major law enforcement and military trends that are intensifying the need to reduce the weight of protective gear. Dyneema® Force Multiplier Technology delivers benefits of significantly lighter weight - enhanced comfort and flexibility for people and greater range, agility and capacity for vehicles - while providing extreme ballistic performance. In fact, pound for pound, the levels of ballistic, fragmentation and trauma protection reached by this technology cannot be achieved by any other material.

The new products based on Dyneema® Force Multiplier Technology can be used to design personal protection (vests, inserts, helmets, soft armor applications and extremity protection) and vehicle armor. Additional products based on this technology are planned.
