About Us

Honeywell has a long history in the development and manufacture of advanced fibers and composites for applications where materials are mission-critical and when success frequently means expanding the accepted limits of performance.

We were innovators in developing an entirely new type of synthetic yarn, and one of the first to offer extended chain, high modulus polyethylene fibers. Pound-for-pound 15 times stronger than steel yet light enough to float, Spectra® fiber is one of the world’s strongest and lightest man-made fibers.

Spectra fiber applications include:

In addition to Spectra fiber, we manufacture Spectra Shield®, Gold Shield® and Gold Flex® ballistic composite materials. Always on the forefront of innovation, Honeywell maintains an active advanced fibers and composites research and development program to inform the next generation of high-performance materials technology.

Our business is part of the Honeywell Performance Materials and Technologies business group. For more information about Honeywell, please visit Honeywell.com.
