Vectran™ LCP fiber offers unique properties as compared to traditional metals in terms of strength-to-weight ratios.
* Specific Strength = Strength/Density (also divided by force of gravity for SI units). Also known as breaking length, the length of fiber that could be held in a vertical direction without breaking.
** Specific Modulus = Modulus/Density (also divided by force of gravity for SI units). This measure increases with increasing stiffness and decreasing density.
|Elongation at Break %||3.4||—||—||2.8||—||—|
VECTRAN™ fiber is available in a variety of sizing options. Please contact a VECTRAN™ sales representative to assist with finish selection for your unique application.
