Badinotti & DSM expand collaboration for Dyneema fiber

DSM Dyneema and Badinotti Group, the global leader in netting for commercial fishing, announced an expanded collaboration to develop and deliver enhanced netting technologies using Dyneema, the world's strongest fiber.

The two companies aim to provide new netting solutions that can meet the challenges of industries and end users. One area of focus will be reducing fish escapes in South America's fish farming industry.

Ultra-strong Dyneema fiber, which has been used successfully in a variety of net applications, offers a higher strength-to-weight ratio, lower maintenance, and longer service life than conventional synthetics.

As part of this closer relationship, Badinotti will become an official licensee of DSM Dyneema's new Commercial Marine Licensing program.

Badinotti will use the Dyneema ingredient brand on its products and participate in joint marketing and business development efforts with DSM Dyneema.

“Badinotti was one of the first companies to introduce nets made with Dyneema fiber in 1996, and since that time our relationship with DSM Dyneema has become stronger,” said Alfonso Rizo Patron, CEO, Badinotti Group.

“By intensifying our joint programme of development, we intend to create netting to meet the challenges of end users. We look forward to leveraging our combined expertise to help customers increase their yields through stronger, safer, and more cost-effective nets.”

Badinotti nets featuring Dyneema fiber have delivered high performance and economic benefits for aquaculture companies around the world for instance, in Mediterranean sea bream farming and Canadian salmon farming.

Now, in addition, the companies will focus on anti-predator and containment netting for South America's aquaculture industry.

Dyneema fiber's exceptional strength and toughness produce netting that can significantly reduce escapes and losses from fish or predators biting through the nets.

Because Dyneema is so strong for its weight, thinner twines can be used, providing less resistance to currents and waves so the nets retain their shape.

These twines form larger openings in the netting so more water can flow through, improving cleanliness and oxygenation for healthier fish.

Because Dyneema does not absorb water, netting is easier to lift out of the water for repairs, especially in heavy seas or bad weather.

“We are very pleased to welcome our longtime partner, Badinotti, as an official licensee within our new Commercial Marine licensing program,” said André van Wageningen, marketing manager Commercial Fishing for DSM Dyneema.

“Using Dyneema fiber, Badinotti continues to lead the industry in innovative netting solutions.

As we expand our collaboration to South America, and address new challenges, we are jointly committed to providing the highest performance, quality and service through technological excellence tothe South American aquaculture industry.”
