Inner Strength Spectra® fiber’s lightweight strength and versatility make it an ideal solution for virtually every rope and cordage requirement. One of the world’s strongest and lightest fibers, pound-for-pound, it is fifteen times stronger than steel, more durable than polyester, and has a specific strength that is 40 percent greater than aramid fiber.
Read how Spectra fiber has been a key component in ropes used for these important projects:
Spectra fiber offers several benefits for rope and cordage applications:
  • High strength-to-size ratio, allowing for lighter weight ropes that are easier to handle and maneuver
  • Hydrophobic, so ropes will not absorb moisture or deteriorate in water
  • Naturally buoyant, making it ideal for various marine and offshore uses
  • No corrosion, superior chemical resistance, increased abrasion resistance and excellent flex fatigue, meaning products last longer and maintenance costs are lower
Spectra fiber is used in a wide range of rope and cordage applications:
