Aracom Miniline combines a low helix angle core of Technora® Aramid with a very tightly woven over-braid of thin polyester. Aracom Miniline provides the maximum strength–to-weight ratio in a composite Aramid polyester construction.

Aracom T is a double braid consisting of a Technora® Aramid core with a sleeve of high-tenacity polyester. Aracom T maintains a high degree of flexibility and is easily spliced.

Featured Applications

Crystalyne is a double-braided rope constructed with an inner load-bearing core of Vectran Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) and has a tough polyester outer sleeve. LCP is more tolerant of bending than other high-modulus fibers and is not as affected by overloading.

Featured Applications

Industrial
Pleasure Marine

Double Esterlon is a double-braided rope constructed of high- tenacity 1W81 polyester fiber, which has a unique cordage finish. This yarn, with an average strength of 9.2 grams per denier, along with Yale’s careful attention to converting machinery setup and the yarn’s extraordinary lubricity, yields the highest-strength double-braid polyester available.

Featured Applications

Arborist
Industrial

Kernmaster is a static-rappelling line constructed with a traditional "mantle" sleeve consisting of 48 strands of polyester. The inside, or "kern," is a braided core of energy-absorbing nylon. The core is fully steam-stabilized to enhance the rope's flexibility and prevent hardening in service.

Featured Applications

Arborist
Industrial

Maxi-Moor II double-braided rope is improved from our original polyster/nylon construction with twice the high-tenacity PET fiber, so it maintains integrity for up to eight times more loading cycles.

Featured Applications

Pleasure Marine

Maxibraid Plus is a double-braided rope constructed of an inner load-bearing core of Honeywell Spectra®. The polyester outer sleeve is slightly thicker than Ultrex Plus, which would provide more abrasion resistance in high-wear applications.

This new version of Yale ULS Yacht Braid double-braid polyester made with a low angle braided core. Based on polyester fiber advances and this low angle construction, now maintains improved strengths and lower stretch. A firm, yet easily spliceable rope that allows for good handling.

Featured Applications

Pleasure Marine

Ultrex Plus is a double braid of Honeywell Spectra®, treated with Maxijacket coating for enhanced toughness. Sleeved with high-tenacity polyester, Ultrex Plus is spliceable, using conventional high-modulus splice techniques or the new Yale tuck splice, which shortens the bury portion and minimizes the length of the larger diameter associated with a bury-type splice.

Featured Applications

Industrial
Pleasure Marine

Vizzion's core will not absorb water, eliminating roughly 75% of the elastic stretch seen in other low-stretch yacht braids. It is an ideal alternative to all-polyester lines for halyards, sheets, guys, and control lines.

Featured Applications
