Ropes and Cordage

The strength and stiffness of Vectran fibers satisfy market demands for smaller and lighter ropes and cords. Its low moisture absorption reduces blistering during the extrusion of coatings, creating more efficient and longer-lasting ropes and cordage. Whether the application is a static or cyclic load, product durability is enhanced by excellent resistance to both creep and flex fatigue.

Key Benefits

  • High tensile properties
  • Low moisture absorption
  • Minimal creep
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Flex resistance

Applications

  • Utility ropes
  • Robotics tethers/cords
  • Mooring lines
  • Deepwater lifting
