Vectran® Fibrillated Fiber

Vectran pulp

Vectran M fibrillated fiber at 200X.

The performance and properties of Vectran M and Vectran HS fibers can now be obtained in fibrillated fiber / pulp forms for various engineered materials applications, including specialty composites, adhesives and sealants, molding compounds, and slurry molded products as well as both technical and specialty grade papers.

Our unique refining capabilities provide high surface area pulps with controlled fiber lengths over a range of 1 to 6mm. The fibrillated pulps have a treelike structure with a main fiber and various size limbs and branches attached to the main trunk. Very fine micro fibrils which are near micron in size can be created with sufficient processing. Vectran M and Vectran HS pulps are available in both wet and dry forms. Pulps have good dispersability and mixing characteristics.

Vectran Pulps are a higher performance alternative to aramid pulps for many applications. Performance features of Vectran fibers include:

  • High strength/stiffness
  • Outstanding vibration damping
  • Excellent creep resistance
  • High abrasion resistance
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Good radiation resistance
  • Now available in pulp form
  • Excellent dielectric properties
  • Low thermal expansion
  • No melting or dripping
  • Good LOI
  • Low smoke generation
