Dyneema®: The material for fuel-saving and more durable air cargo equipment. Steel is okay. Aluminum is good. Nylon is okay. Polyester is good. But Dyneema® fiber is often up to 10 times better! In 2003, we introduced the first bullet-resistant cockpit doors to be FAA certified for worldwide use. Following this entry as a high-tech material supplier, DSM Dyneema decided to explore the world of air travel further, by developing materials for aircrafts and for air cargo equipment. By cooperating with global suppliers of aircraft and cargo equipment, we now provide Dyneema® fiber for braided air cargo pallet nets and woven Dyneema® fabric for air cargo container components. In addition, Dyneema® fiber can be used in the manufacturing of lightweight composite materials for use in aircraft. Dyneema®, the world’s strongest fiber™, helps you because: Reducing weight saves fuel. And saving fuel improves cash flow. Dyneema® fiber offers you more strength than traditional materials, at a much lower weight and water absorbency. The result: the world’s first and only air cargo pallet net weighing under 20 lbs (under 9 kg), and the world’s lightest air cargo container door. Imagine the fuel savings per flight! Reducing weight allows you to carry more cargo, increasing profits. Reducing the weight of your equipment means you can carry more cargo per flight. It also means quicker and faster airport handling! Less damage means more time in use, lower repair costs, reduced inventory and longer equipment life. Dyneema® fiber has up to 10 times more resistance to abrasion around metal parts like double studs and hooks. Nets, ropes and fabrics made with Dyneema® show up to 8 times better flex fatigue behavior in comparison to other fibers. Your cargo equipment will be in the air more often, and longer. Better protection for your customer’s cargo results in less damage. Dyneema® fiber makes your air cargo equipment resistant to tears, cuts, impact, UV-light and chemicals. Only air cargo pallet nets made with Dyneema® fiber are light and small and tough enough to be washed in a standard household washing machine! In addition, Dyneema® fiber withstands the harshest conditions an airport can dish out, from frozen arctic weather to humid tropical environments. Dyneema® fiber can take large drops and tough hits from forklifts. Better protection for your aircraft saves you on repairs. Fabric made with Dyneema® fiber is extremely soft and flexible. So, although strong, cargo parts made with Dyneema® fiber won’t damage your aircraft. Air cargo equipment made with Dyneema® fiber should drastically improve your ROI. The savings you are expected to receive by using air cargo equipment made with Dyneema® fiber offer you an attractive return on investment. We will help you calculate your shortest R.O.I. on your air cargo equipment! DSM Dyneema B.V. is part of DSM.
