Aracom T Cordage / Technora Core Polyester Sleeve

Aracom T

Aracom T is a double braid consisting of a Technora Aramid core with a sleeve of high tenacity polyester. Yale's exclusive Aralube process infuses the Technora with molten lubricant prior to entering our twisting equipment. Lab and field experience has shown that this added, internal permanent lubrication (non-soluble) treatment leads to an extended wear life (as much as four times). It cuts down internal abrasion, reduces filament breakage in processing and helps us manage fiber tensions in the factory as we ply up a strand.  Aracom T maintains a high degree of flexibility , and is easily spliced. The polyester sleeve is thicker than its sister product Miniline which gives it better protection in high abrasion applications. The entire strength of Aracom T is derived from the core and the sleeve's purpose is to protect the core from abrasion.

* Knots and abrupt bends significantly reduce the strength of all ropes and lowers maximum working load.
** Working load is based on static or moderately dynamic lifting/pulling operations. Instantaneous 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.
