A word about the fiber

Vectran™ is Kuraray’s high-performance multifilament yarn spun from liquid crystal polymer. The fiber is five times stronger than steel and offers a unique combination of outstanding properties.

Applications of the yarn

Vectran™ is used in a wide range of applications. Protecting fixed shore nets from sea lions, tension members of various types, sling belts, window screen cords, envelopes for airships, safety materials, nets for separating spectators at sports events, rubber belt reinforcement, sports equipment, canoeing, paragliding, geogrid, rope, course rope, etc.

Characteristics of the yarn

  • Dimensional stability
  • High-strength (the fiber is five times stronger than steel)
  • Cut/shearing resistance
  • Resistant to chemicals
  • Shock absorption (absorbs the energy of shocks, and its composites show high resistance to compressive and bending stress)
  • Low moisture absorption (minimal moisture absorption, as well as no loss of tenacity or change in dimensions when wet)
  • Abrasion resistance (improved resistance to fiber-to-fiber abrasion and wear from bending)
  • Vibration damping (quickly absorbs vibrations)
