Ultra-High molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) fibers yield very high strength and cut resistant ropes often facilitating replacement of steel cables at one tenth their weight. Novatec Braids specifies Spectra©900 Yarn from Honeywell for construction of its high performance ropes Polyspec, Novalite HP, Spectec and Weighted Fast Rope. Spectra© 1000 is also available for special higher tensile applications.
Able to withstand extremely high visco-elastic strain and high-load strain rate velocities, this unique fiber is simultaneously light enough to float, exhibits extraordinary resistance to water, UV light and chemicals. Choose Spectra rope for your high performance fishing and marine rope applications.
