Zanshin is on a distinguished road
I found a page on the web showing physical characteristics of Dyneema and they stressed that it makes an optimal covering for radar and sonar as its dielectric constant is a low 22oC/10GHz: 2.25 and Loss tangen: 2. 10-4 {which means nothing to me, but sounds impressive} so perhaps that is a point in its favor if used around a SSB antenna.

Here is the link to the manufacturer's factsheet: http://www.dyneema.com/en_US/public/...ext.src=search
