Celanese Vectran HS LCP Fiber  (discontinued **)
Categories: Other Engineering Material; Composite Fibers; Polymer; Thermoplastic; Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP)

Material Notes: Vectran is a high-performance thermoplastic multifilament yarn spun from liquid crystal polymer (LCP). Vectran fiber exhibits exceptional strength and rigidity. Pound for pound Vectran fiber is five times stronger than steel and ten times stronger than aluminum. These properties characterize Vectran: High strength and modulus, excellent creep resistance, high abrasion resistance, excellent flex/fold characteristics, minimal moisture absorption , excellent chemical resistance, low coefficient of thermal expansion, high dielectric strength, outstanding cut resistance, excellent property retention at high/low temperatures, outstanding vibration damping characteristics, high impact resistance.

Applications: Ropes and cables, electronics, recreations, aerospace, composites, military, industrial

Chemical Resistance: Hydrolytically stable. Resistant to organic solvents. Stable to acids (<90% conc.). Stable to bases (<30% conc.).

Information provided by Celanese Corporation. Vectran fiber is now a part of Kuraray's product line.

Category Notes

Materials flagged as discontinued () are no longer part of the manufacturer’s standard product line according to our latest information. These materials may be available by special order, in distribution inventory, or reinstated as an active product. Data sheets from materials that are no longer available remain in MatWeb to assist users in finding replacement materials.

Users of our Advanced Search (registration required) may exclude discontinued materials from search results.

Some of the values displayed above may have been converted from their original units and/or rounded in order to display the information in a consistent format. Users requiring more precise data for scientific or engineering calculations can click on the property value to see the original value as well as raw conversions to equivalent units. We advise that you only use the original value or one of its raw conversions in your calculations to minimize rounding error.
