I love the Dyneema composite material. It is very much like the material a monarch caterpillar spins around himself to form a chrysalis. Or somethingspun from an army of black widow spiders. In fact, it feels quite a bit like those extremely lightweight produce bags at the grocery. You think it is going to be weak, and it is certainly not.
I built a small parachute prototype using the 1/3 oz/yd version of this composite, and had an assistant run down the hallway with it to see what it looked like. Of course, full gallop, she caught the thing on a fire door frame which halted all activity instantaneously, tearing it from her grip and hanging there from the corner of the door frame by one gore. I really expected it to be damaged somehow, but it was not.
Its only weakness is its absolute intolerance to heat.
The order was filled fast and properly, as always with RipStop. I didn't really want to have to pay for the insurance, but couldn't quickly figure out how to delete it.
Cutting, gluing and sewing are very easy.
Just make a crease and glue it while paying attention to wrinkles.
Similarly, sewing is easy, but the seams need to be reinforced with repair tape.
However, it is easy to process, but to build a tarp, you need to be an experienced person who has a good understanding of the characteristics of DCF and the calculation of patterns that take wind resistance into consideration.
I want to make outdoor wear
Used this for a simple, lightweight groundcloth. RBTR great as always
