DSM Dyneema is bringing its award-winning Dyneema® Force Multiplier Technology for life protection to the defense and law enforcement communities in Latin America. It recently showcased the technology at LAAD Defense & Security 2015, an exhibition that brings together Brazilian and international companies specialized in supplying equipment, services and technology to the armed forces, police and special forces, security services, consultants and government agencies.

Dyneema Force Multiplier Technology combines breakthroughs in polymer science, ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMwPE) fiber technology and unique uni-directional engineering to deliver up to 25 percent higher ballistic protection while reducing weight by up to 30 percent. The technology is currently being used by leading manufacturers in Europe and the United States to create personal protection and vehicle armor designs.
