1.43 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 1.43 oz/yd 2 variant of DCF has a much higher Dyneema® fiber content along with a thicker mylar layer compared to the 0.8 oz/yd 2 variant. This makes it significantly stronger in tensile/tear strength, more abrasion/puncture resistant, and the lightest DCF fabric recommended for ultralight backpacks, food/bear bags, etc.
Also great for ultralight yet robust rain gear, highly durable tarps/tents/shelter walls or floors, reinforcement areas, and any type of stuff sack or packing pod.
