Vectran® Liquid Crystal Polymer

Vectran® Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP)

High Strength and Flex Fatigue

History
First produced in 1990, Vectran® is the only commercially available melt spun LCP fiber in the world.

Composition
Vectran® is an aromatic polyester spun from a liquid crystal polymer in a melt extrusion process. This process orients the molecules along the fiber axis, resulting in a high tenacity fiber.

Manufacturer
Kuraray™
