Honeywell Advanced Fibers and Composites

Colonial Heights, VA 23834

Company Overview

In the mid-1980s, Honeywell (formerly Allied Signal Inc.) introduced Spectra fiber. An entirely new type of synthetic yarn, it was one of the first commercially available extended chain, high-modulus polyethylene fibers. Because Spectra fiber is a polyethylene - with a carbon-to-carbon molecular structure like that of a diamond - it creates a continuous filament yarn with incredible performance and endurance. Pound-for-pound fifteen (15) times stronger than steel yet light enough to float, Spectra fiber is one of the world's strongest and lightest manmade fibers. Spectra fiber applications include cut protection, ropes and cordage, vehicular and personal armor, and fishing line, as well as various specialty applications.
