Alliedsignal Spectraź shield is the strongest, lighest man made fiber. Spectraź is 10 times stronger than steel, 40 percent stronger than aramids and stronger and lighter than virtually every other comercial high modulus panel. Spectraź is light enough to float on water, exhibits superior resistance to chemicals, water and UV light. It has excellent vibration dampening, flex fatigue and internal fiber-friction characteristics.

Spectraź fiber is one of the world's strongest and lightest fibers. A bright white polyethylene, Spectraź fiber is, pound-for-pound, 10 times stronger than steel and up to 40 percent stronger than aramids. It floats, resists chemicals and water, and exhibits superior fiber-to-fiber abrasion.

Spectraź fiber's outstanding visco-elastic properties means that the faster and harder the impact from a bullet, the stronger these fibers become, making them ideal for hard and soft body armor.

Spectraź fibers are used in numerous applications, including police and military ballistic vests; helmets and armored vehicles; sailcloth; fishing lines; marine cordage and lifting slings; and cut resistant gloves and safety apparel.
