0.7 oz/yd 2 Dyneeema® Composite Fabric (formerly Cuben Fiber). DCF is a patented, ultra-lightweight fabric made of flexible non-woven composite laminates which are reinforced with Dyneema ® fibers.
This fabric is costly and for good reason. It's 15x strong than steel and provides the highest tear and tensile strength of any competing fabric on a weight-by-weight and thickness basis. Use only for projects that demand high-performance and the absolute best in ultra-lightweight, waterproof fabric.
The 0.7 oz/yd 2 variant of DCF has the same Dyneema® Fiber content as the 0.51 oz/yd 2, but a thicker mylar layer. This results in higher abrasion and puncture resistance, but similar tensile/tear strength (compared to 0.51 oz/yd 2 variant).
Best used for tent/shelter floors, reinforcement areas, rain gear, ultralight tarps, tents, flys, and light duty stuff sacks.
*Note that all DCF fabrics are sold in 1/2 yd increments to help reduce cost for smaller projects. Please enter a whole number of half yards in the box up top. For example, if you want 7 yds total, enter "14" in the half yard box.
