Schoeller-dynatec is a durable, high-tensile fabric featuring a glow-in-the dark-effect. The fabric has a filigree, 3-D mesh structure with a special yarn woven into it that when exposed to light, absorbs and then emits the light into the dark, becoming visible. The fabric is used in interior design products such as office chairs, room dividers and interiors; as well as in safety-related applications such as shoes or for work protection. Schoeller-dynatec is bluesign® approved.
