Crystalyne / Vectran Core Polyester Sleeve Rope

Crystalyne

Applications: For halyards, sheets, guys and control lines.

Construction: Core: Braid of 100% Vectran LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer). Sleeve: Braid of smooth filament polyester.

Crystalyne is a combination of a urethane Maxijacket coated core of Vectran and an outer sleeve of polyester. The Maxijacketed core is color matched to the solid color of the solution dyed polyester cover. Vectran is a high-modulus, liquid crystal polymer which combines high strength , low stretch, and low creep. It delivers the lightweight, all-weather performance that makes it the preferred choice of high-performance racers worldwide.When strength is critical and stretch cannot be tolerated.

Specific Gravity: 1.40
Color Code: Solid colors: White (40), Red (41), Blue (42), Green (43), Black (45), Gray (36), Yellow (49)

* 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.
