DSM expands Dyneema production

DSM will expand its production capacity for Dyneema, the super-strong polyethylene fibre, by at least 40% by building two new production lines in Greenville (North Carolina, USA) with a combined capacity of 1300/1600 tons per year (depending on product grade mix). In addition, DSM plans to build two new production lines for Dyneema UD (UD = UniDirectional, ballistic sheet material), one next to the existing UD line in Greenville (operational since 2001) and one in Heerlen, the Netherlands, next to the existing five Dyneema yarn production lines and the existing UD production line. In total four new production lines will be built, involving an investment of around EUR 100 million.
