Aracom 100™ is a 12-strand rope comprised of 100 percent Technora Aramid fiber. Teijin's Technora Aramid is selected for this rope due to its ease of handling and reduced internal yarn on yarn friction, which greatly increases this Aramid's longevity. Before we twist this fiber we over apply our own exclusive Aralube coating which improves its translation efficiency as we process it through our manufacturing facility. The rope is twisted and braided with sufficient firmness to be considered self-supporting although many users opt for our Maxijacket urethane coated version which greatly increases its abrasion resistance. Aramid has inherent temperature resistance and has little creep once the rope's permanent elongation is exercised out.

* Knots and abrupt bends significantly reduce the strength of all ropes and lowers the maximum working load.
** Working load is based on static or moderately dynamic lifting/pulling operations. Instant changes in load up or down in excess of 10% of the rope's rated working load constitutes hazardous shock load and would void normal working load recommendation. Consult Yale Cordage for guidelines for working loads and safe use of rope.
