Welcome to Kuraray VECTRAN™

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

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
