The Benefits of Spectra Fiber
- 15 times stronger than steel by weight – lighter weight/heavier loads
- Light enough to float (.97 g/cc specific gravity) – no capacity loss in water
- Hydrophobic – no water weight gain
- Chemical resistance - does not corrode and eliminates need for lubrication
- Excellent abrasion resistance – longer life
- Excellent flex and bending fatigue performance – longer life
- Very good UV resistance – eliminates the need for UV protective coatings
- Excellent cut resistance – improves durability – longer life
- Low coefficient of friction – reduces energy loss and heat buildup
