Vectran Braids

Designed to withstand the rugged demands of the loadings of blocks and winches, Vectran® is a Thermotropic Liquid Chrystal fiber with the finest technical characteristics to incorporate into any high performance braid.  Vectran combines all the benefits of Spectra® with the advantage of Kevlar® to produce a rope that will not stretch or creep under the extremes of continuous long term loads.  Vectran® can be used in core, jacket or be blended with other fibres to enhance heat dissipation.
