Vectran® is a high-strength fiber developed by Kuraray which is used in a wide range of applications
from sports to industrial materials.
In addition to its strength, non-hygroscopic Vectran® offers a combination of outstanding properties
including low elongation, low creep and dimensional stability,
making it a suitable material for a range of cord products.
It hardly absorbs moisture, making it resistant to dimensional and physical changes in warm and moist environments.
Its dimensions undergo almost no change allowing it to exhibit outstanding performance in applications requiring millimeter-level accuracy.
Highly resistant to heat.
Exhibits excellent heat aging resistance under both high and wet atmospheric heat conditions.
Highly resistant to both fiber-to-fiber abrasion and wear from bending, offering a more wear-resistant cord alternative.
|Fiber-to-fiber abrasion (times)*1||23600||945||25900|
|MIT bending (strength retention rate %)*2||97||51||95|
