VectranŽ [PU] with PU treatment

The Vectran® fiber is highly connected with its primary characteristic of having a near zero creep, up to 50% of its breaking load. Vectran braids are ideal when used under static loads: eg. main sail and genoa halyards, as well as for steering line systems. Suitable for afterguys, bearing in mind that the fibre is not resistant to U.V. rays and therefore it is not particularly fit for use without a sheath, unless in particular cases, protected from the light or if replacements are programmed and under strict control.
