PolyPlus Braid is an affordable 12-strand single-braid rope constructed of high-tenacity polyester plied over "Para-ep" polyolefin in each individual strand.
A unique plying technique as well as a generous proportion of polyester to olefin is coupled with Yale’s exclusive Aralube treatment to optimize the rope’s abrasion resistance. The "Para-ep" provides body to the rope and enhances its handling characteristics while keeping the rope’s weight to a minimum.
The two-end-per-carrier structure makes the rope very easy to splice, and it is entirely torque balanced. PolyPlus Braid is the strongest single-braid polyester/polyolefin blended rope available and is always manufactured with dual red strands.

* 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 395 ft. lbs./lb.
Red ultimate 8,228 ft. lbs./lb.
Specific Gravity: 1.25
Dielectric Strength: The maximum allowable leakage for clean, dry PolyPlus Braid 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.
