Spectra® fiber’s lightweight strength and versatility make it an ideal solution for virtually every rope and cordage requirement. One of the world’s strongest and lightest fibers, pound-for-pound, it is fifteen times stronger than steel, more durable than polyester, and has a specific strength that is 40 percent greater than aramid fiber.
Spectra fiber offers several benefits for rope and cordage applications:
- High strength-to-size ratio, allowing for lighter weight ropes that are easier to handle and maneuver
- Hydrophobic, so ropes will not absorb moisture or deteriorate in water
- Naturally buoyant, making it ideal for various marine and offshore uses
- No corrosion, superior chemical resistance, increased abrasion resistance and excellent flex fatigue, meaning products last longer and maintenance costs are lower
Spectra fiber is used in a wide range of rope and cordage applications:
