Vectran is a manufactured fiber, spun from a liquid-crystal polymer (LCP) created by Celanese Corporation and now manufactured by Kuraray. Chemically it is an aromatic polyester produced by the polycondensation of 4-hydroxybenzoic acid and 6-hydroxynaphthalene-2-carboxylic acid.
Technora® Staple fiber. Available in either dark yellow or black, Technora® staple fibers reinforce textile applications for gloves as well as protective apparel against heat and cuts. These staple fibers are available with a specific fiber length of 51 mm, and a linear density of 1.7 dtex. Crystalyne exhibits more tension cycles to higher percentages of break than all our other high-modulus offerings. Unlike ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMPE) ropes, LCP fiber has little or no tendency to creep and can be used to hold tight tolerances in rope assemblies. Vectran is hydrophobic, meaning it cannot absorb water.
Vectra® liquid crystal polymer (LCP) 1. Introduction and Overview 2. Vectra® LCP Product Line 2.1 Grade Description 2.1.1 Glass fiber reinforced grades (100-series) Warwick engineers are experts in weaving all Vectran deniers, including 100d, as well as the application of Vectran HS fiber and Vectran M fiber. The Vectran Advantage "Vectran is a high-performance thermoplastic multifilament yarn spun from Vectra liquid crystal polymer (LCP). Vectran is the only commercially-available melt spun LCP fiber in ... Vectran® is an aromatic polyester spun from a liquid crystal polymer in a melt extrusion process. This process orients the molecules along the fiber axis, resulting in a high tenacity fiber.
