PE-12 has been re-engineered, boosting its strengths significantly. Using the same high-tenacity fiber we use in our value-packed Portland Braid, this polyester single braid offers a single-end-per-carrier construction, which keeps the rope from flattening out in service and self centers in sheaves beautifully.
PE-12 comes with the same tough grades of Maxijacket urethane we use on our more expensive products. PE-12 is easy to splice, and field repairs are easily accomplished. It is available in unlimited lengths and brilliant colors for easy identification. PE-12 is torque free and is undamaged when rigging with swivels.

* Knots and abrupt bends significantly reduce the strength of all ropes and lower the 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 constitute hazardous shock load and would void the normal working-load recommendation. Consult Yale Cordage for guidelines for working loads and the safe use of rope.
Green working 405 ft. lbs./lb.

Specific Gravity: 1.38
Dielectric Strength: The maximum allowable leakage for clean, dry PE-12 is 100 micro-amperes when tested at 100kV per Yale Method 712-1701 Rev 1 "Routine Production Test." Absorbed and entrained moisture or impurities will increase rope’s conductivity dramatically.
