Cables and Umbilicals

High strength and stiffness translate to smaller and thinner cables, along with high burst pressure for reinforced tubing. In addition, minimal fiber creep protects optics from unplanned strain in order to maintain optimal signal quality. Vectran also maintains high strength after multiple reelings/deployments and provides excellent abrasion resistance in rugged locations.

  • Minimal creep
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Flex resistance

Applications

  • Internal tension/strain relief
  • Protective jackets or harnesses
  • Overbraids for higher burst pressures
