Abstract: The creep behaviour of braided cordages made of different high performance fibres, such as ultra high molecular weight extended chain polyethylene (Spectra® and Dyneema®), liquid crystalline polymer (Vectran®) and high tenacity nylon has been studied and then compared both during loading and relaxation phases. Nylon and Vectran® appear to have superior creep behaviour to that of Dyneema® and Spectra®. The heat setting has been found to improve the creep behaviour of nylon cordages.
