Hy-Dee Brait is an 8-strand bi-polymer rope with extraordinary dielectric properties. The rope is nubby, which provides excellent grip, and treated with a proprietary chemical mixture Yale calls Aralube-dielectric.
This treatment is the key to Hy-Dee Brait's wet dielectric performance and allows us to make the highest dielectric-strength rope commercially available. It is easy to splice with a tucking procedure or by the quick splice method.
This product is 100% lot tested for dielectric conformance.

* 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.
Dielectric Strength: Hy-Dee Brait complies to ASTM specification F1701-12 that calls for a maximum leakage of 250 micro-amperes at any time during the wet test. Electrodes are 1 foot apart, shielded and the test is conducted at 50KV-AC.
