LCP yarns



Vectran is the brand name for a high-performance thermoplastic multifilament yarn spun from Vectran liquid crystal polymer (LCP). Vectran is the only commercially available melt spun LCP fiber in the world. Vectran fiber exhibits exceptional strength and rigidity. Pound for pound Vectran fiber is five times stronger than steel and ten times stronger than aluminum.

The result of more than 15 years of dedicated research and development by Celanese scientists and the establishment of over 130 LCP-related U.S. patents, Vectran fiber provides engineers with exciting material selection options. This new fiber is available as Vectran HT, a high-strength reinforcement fiber and Vectran NT, a high-performance matrix fiber. 

Where Existing Materials Fail to Perform 

A unique combination of properties differentiates liquid crystal polymer fiber from other high-performance fibers and makes it the material of choice in demanding applications where other fibers fail to meet performance requirements. The remarkable range of mechanical properties exhibited by Vectran fibers and their unique combination of properties permits them to be used for a variety of purposes. 


The unique properties of liquid crystal polymer yarns are:

  • 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 (CTE) 
  • High dielectric strength 
  • Outstanding cut resistance 
  • Excellent property retention at high/low temperatures 
  • Outstanding vibration damping characteristics 
  • High impact resistance



Vectran fibers are used in:

  • aerospace
  • ocean exploration and development
  • electronic support structures
  • the recreation and leisure industry
  • safety materials
  • industrial applications
  • ropes
  • cables
  • composites
  • protective garments. ..
  • high tenacity
  • monofilament
  • fibers
  • spun yarns
