Honeywell also converts Spectra® fiber into the Spectra Shield® family of specialty composites for armor and other applications. The Spectra Shield® family of composite products began with the development of Shield technology by Honeywell in the late 1980s.
Honeywell engineers have also developed Shield products using other high-performance fibers, such as aramid fiber in our Gold Flex® and Gold Shield® products. Since the late 1980s Shield technology and the Spectra Shield® family of composite products have revolutionized armor systems in ballistic resistant vests and hard armor applications used by law enforcement agencies and militaries throughout the world.
Improving workplace safety with Cut – resistance fibar and engineered yarns systems
Honeywell is at the forefront of cut-resistant fiber technology, especially for knit and woven fabrics. We are one of the world’s foremost manufacturers of cut-resistance fibers and a “cutting edge” developer of engineered yarn products.
Spectra® fiber has resistance to cut and abrasion, making it an excellent choice for
Liners and sleeves. Our patented Spectra Guard™ and Spectra Guard™ CX engineered
Yarn technology take cut and slash protection to higher levels for personal protection,
As well as vandal-resistant and safety fabrics.
