Prisma embodies a coating technology that "creates innovative solutions to shield High Performance Fibers." The name Prisma originates from the initial trials conducted when EuroFibers tried to coat Dyneema fibers. Dyneema is only available in white and now also black. With the Prisma coating technology we can offer it in all colors of the rainbow. The logo with the stylized shield is a profound statement in itself with the shield representing the protective features the Prisma coating technology offers the treated High Performance Fibers.
