PARIS, France – April 17, 2023 – Today, Avient Corporation is excited to announce it will showcase Dyneema® ultra-lightweight specialty fiber for the first time as part of its growing composite materials and sustainable solutions portfolios at JEC World 2023 next week.

Avient’s recent acquisition of the globally admired brand of Dyneema®, the world’s strongest fiber™, in September 2022 further advances its unparalleled portfolio of advanced composite and engineered fiber materials. The ultra-lightweight specialty fiber is 15 times stronger than steel, yet light enough to float on water, inspiring industries to transform the performance of countless products for demanding applications. This includes personal ballistic protection, industrial protective gear, lightweight & breathable fabrics for outdoor adventures, as well as ropes, nets, and synthetic chains for offshore and maritime operations.

“The addition of Dyneema® accelerates our evolution into a specialty formulator of sustainable solutions, opening up new opportunities for future growth while building on the Dyneema® brand’s proud heritage of innovation, collaboration, and sustainability,” said Chris Pederson, president, Specialty Engineered Materials at Avient. “We’re now part of protecting more than one million first responders globally and are ready to support and collaborate on developing the best possible solutions together: for business, people, and the planet.” 

At JEC 2023, Avient will also highlight its complete portfolio of advanced composite materials and engineered fiber solutions that offer high strength, weight reduction, and corrosion resistance for products across a broad range of industries and markets, including:
