Material LCP - Liquid crystal polymer
LCP is a thermoplastic fibre with exceptional strength and rigidity (five times that of steel), and about 15 times the fatigue resistance of aramid. Very good impact resistance.

It doesn't absorb moisture, has very low stretch, it doesn't creep like UHMW-PE fibre, and has excellent abrasion, wear, and chemical resistance. Its high melting-point (320 C) allows the retention of these properties over broad ranges of temperatures.

It is suitable for industrial, electronic, and aerospace applications, as well as for ropes, and sport equipment.
