Welcome to Kuraray Vectran

Pound for pound, Vectran is five times stronger than steel and ten times stronger than aluminum. Using liquid crystal polymer (LCP) technology, Vectran has excellent fiber tensile properties as well as a high strength modulus. Kuraray acquired Vectran from Celanese in 2005, and continues to produce this unique fiber in Fort Mill, South Carolina.

Vectran has the following additional characteristics:

  • Excellent creep resistance
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Excellent flex/fold characteristics
  • Minimal moisture absorption
  • Chemical resistance
  • Low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE)
  • High dielectric strength
  • Outstanding cut resistance
  • Vibration damping characteristics
  • High impact strength
