3.5oz/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 stronger 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 3.5 oz/yd 2 variant of DCF is a 2-layer laminate material using a 50D polyester plain-weave face fabric like the 2.92 oz hybrid, but with a 2.15 DCF layer on the back. This adds an appreciable amount of tear strength. The polyester face fabric adds strength and makes the material look more like a traditional woven fabric.
Highly durable fabric best used for ultralight yet super tough backpacks, bags, rain gear, pouches, packing pods, etc.
*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.
