Fibers

fiber roll-spectraHoneywell 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
  • Stronger than steel and 40 percent stronger than aramid fiber
  • Capable of withstanding high-load strain-rate velocities
