Fabrics

The tensile properties of Vectran enable lightweight reinforcement and ultra-thin scrims and veils. Cut, slash, and abrasion resistance further improves the performance of protective textiles compared to traditional fibers.

Excellent thermal properties simplify fabric processing steps such as scouring, coating, and seaming. Fabric performance benefits from Vectran™ include:

  • Dimensional stability to maintain complex shapes
  • Flex/fold fatigue resistance for repeated deployments and pack/unpack cycles
  • Chemical resistance to withstand typical laundering processes

Key Benefits

  • High tensile properties
  • Minimal creep
  • Flex resistance
  • Thermal properties (elevated and low-T performance)

Applications

  • Protective textiles/PPE
  • Inflatables/flexible composites
  • Tensile structures/architectural
  • Motorcycle clothing
