High Strength Fibers

The inherent advantages of Spectra® fibers - such as high strength-to-weight ratios, durability, and overall versatility - have led to their adoption in a wide range of applications.


Every day, soldiers and police officers put their lives on the line while protected by Spectra® fiber in their bullet-resistant vests, vehicles and helmets. Honeywell’s Spectra fiber is one of the strongest manmade fibers and delivers on quality where it counts.


Spectra’s properties also allow for improved productivity in many ways. Lighter equipment, increased capacities and reduced manpower result from Spectra’s high strength to weight ratio. Spectra’s abrasion and bending performance leads to longer life and less downtime.


Pound for pound, Spectra fiber is 15 times stronger than steel, lends its lightweight strength to industrial workplaces. Spectra is light enough to float in water while remaining hydrophobic.


Spectra’s light weight reduces lifting strains and back injuries. Its low density and low elongation minimize snapback risk to users. It is soft to the touch yet remarkably durable without requiring lubricants that increase slipping and environmental concerns.
