Spectra® Fiber

Spectra® Fiber

Spectra® fiber is one of the strongest and lighest fibers available.  A bright white polyethylene, it is 15 times stronger than steel, more durable than polyester and has a specific strength that is 40% greater than aramid fiber.  With outstanding toughness and extraordinary visco-elastic properties, Spectra fiber can withstand high load strain rate velocities.


Properties of Spectra® Fiber:

  • One of the highest strength to weight ratios of any manmade fiber
  • Oustanding toughness and visco-elasti properties
  • Light enough to float
  • High resistance to chemicals, water and ultraviolet light
  • Excellent vibration damping, flex fatigue and internal fiber friction characteristics
  • Low elongation
  • High resistance to abrasion
  • Resists corrosion
  • Low dielectric constant



  • Industrial Rope and Cordage
  • Lifting Slings
  • Safety and Rescue Ropes
  • Ropes for extreme sport climbing
