Inner Strength

Honeywell Spectra® fiber provides lightweight, dependable strength in demanding applications. Produced using a patented gel-spinning process, it is:

  • A bright white polyethylene fiber with high resistance to chemicals, water and ultraviolet light
  • 15X stronger than steel and 40 percent stronger than aramid fiber
  • Capable of withstanding high-load strain-rate velocitie
  • DNV and OCIMF certified fibers available

Spectra fiber offers several benefits for rope and cordage applications:

  • High strength-to-size ratio, allowing for lighter weight ropes that are easier to handle and maneuver
  • Hydrophobic, so ropes will not absorb moisture or deteriorate in water
  • Naturally buoyant, making it ideal for various marine and offshore uses
  • No corrosion, superior chemical resistance, increased abrasion resistance and excellent flex fatigue, meaning products last longer and maintenance costs are lower


Spectra fiber is used in a wide range of rope and cordage applications:
