Honeywell invents and manufactures technologies to address some of the world’s toughest challenges initiated by revolutionary macrotrends in science, technology and society. A Fortune 100 company, we create solutions to improve the quality of life of people around the globe: Generating clean, healthy energy – and using it more efficiently. Increasing our safety and security. Enabling people around the world to connect, communicate, and collaborate. And equipping our customers to be even more productive. With approximately 132,000 employees worldwide, including more than 22,000 engineers and scientists, we have an unrelenting commitment to quality and delivering results in everything we make and do.
In the armor and industrial space, we have a long history in the development and manufacture of advanced fibers and composites for applications where materials are mission-critical and when success frequently means expanding the accepted limits of performance. Our materials are used to protect law enforcement and military personnel, complete deepwater installations in the oil and gas industry, and help fishermen secure prize catches.
We were innovators in developing an entirely new type of synthetic yarn, and one of the first to offer extended chain, high modulus polyethylene fibers. Pound-for-pound 15 times stronger than steel yet light enough to float, Spectra® fiber is one of the world’s strongest and lightest man-made fibers.
Spectra fiber applications include:
In addition to Spectra fiber, we manufacture Spectra Shield®, Gold Shield® and Gold Flex® ballistic composite materials. Always on the forefront of innovation, Honeywell maintains an active advanced fibers and composites research and development program to inform the next generation of high-performance materials technology.
Our business is part of the Honeywell Performance Materials and Technologies business group. For more information about Honeywell, please visit Honeywell.com.
