    Dynel is an exceptionally popular laminate fabric most importantly for its ability to be handled without generating irritant or allergenic reactions from skin contact. Strong and versatile, Dynel is supple and soft like a true woven fabric with no fibers to irritate your skin and is made of yarn which is exceptionally pliable to easily conform to complex contours, curves and corners.

    The weave of Dynel is not tight to ensure ease of use, fast wet-out and modest texture making it ideal for decking or cabin topping. For these reasons and more, Dynel is used for museum-quality restoration work on wooden boats world-wide as well as for many applications outside the marine field by persons of all different levels of skill and skin sensitivity working with laminate cloths.

    Available in continuous lengths up to 100 yds.


    • Excellent adhesion:
      • For laminates, adhesion is essential, and Dynel is excellent: in fact, it is nearly perfect
      • It wets out readily and adheres well to polyester and epoxy resin
      • There are no voids or capillary spaces leading from the surface of laminate to serve as initial starting point for further degradation
      • The wet out is instantaneous when resin is applied
    • Increased durability:
      • Adding a layer of Dynel to the surface of a laminate as hull reinforcement provides increased resistance to abrasion, and improves the laminate's ability to respond favorably on impact and to resist deterioration
    • Fracture resistance:
      • As an overlay over glass, it preserves the surface against miniscule fractures that often occur in fiberglass gel coat
    • Reduced surface friction:
      • Higher performance is attained by boats using Dynel as an overlay
      • The slick Dynel surface has less friction
      • Crazing is reduced substantially
    • Low weight/high strength ratio:
      • Dynel is relatively light-weight (4. 2 Oz. Per square yard, 17 x 17 weave. )
      • In ratio to its tensile strength. Dynel can absorb work loads 6-8 times greater than glass
      • Dynel will have more limited physical properties when used alone rather than as an overlay
      • Ideally suited for planking on larger boats that work in rough seas, provided more than a single layer is used
        • Decks will require several layers
    • Easy application:
      • 1) Smooth fabric over one side of the hull or other surface after all fittings have been removed
      • 2) Staple fabric in place or use other means to hold it while you use a scissors to cut off excess along edges and at ends
      • 3) Coat the fabric with epoxy or polyester resin, depending on which is appropriate for your application
    • An alternative application would be to saturate the cloth with resin on a worksheet and then to lay the Dynel saturated with resin in place, provided the cloth was cut to size in advance

    Note: Dynel can be used in conjunction with other laminate fabrics such as fiberglass, xynole or others if the condition of the boat demands laminate layers with different performance characteristics.
