Vectran® is a high-performance multifilament yarn spun from liquid crystal polymer. Pound for pound Vectran fiber is five times stronger than steel and ten times stronger than aluminum, which makes it the material of choice in demanding applications where other fibers fail to meet performance requirements. Vectran braided sleeving also demonstrates minimal moisture absorption, outstanding cut and abrasion resistance, high dielectric strength, and melt temperature of 625°F.
Inside Diameters Are Measured as Round Not Flat
Vectran® sleeving is used in a wide range of applications, including aerospace, high tech research, industrial protection, marine and medical uses.
