The use of our High Performance Fibers, besides increasing the performance of the final product, will increase the durability and therefore result in a more sustainable final product. Because of the extreme high strength of our High Performance Fibers, only a relative small amount is required to significantly improve performance, durability and lifetime of the final product.
A good example of this is the addition of less than 5% of UHMWPE fiber into cotton that can double the lifetime of a denim fabric (typically used for workwear applications) and in this way save thousands of liters of water to grow the cotton required to produce one pair of jeans.
We want to help our customers to further reduce their carbon footprint. That’s why we convert our portfolio to more sustainable products. As of October 2020 FibrXL has bio-based Dyneema® SK99 and SK78 available for customers. Click here to read the press release.
