Cat’s Eye Ultrex is a specially designed product for underground mining. This rope keeps the high strength of Ultrex and adds a reflective component to allow it to be seen in the conditions unique to underground mining.

Maxibraid is a 12-strand single-braid rope constructed from Honeywell Spectra® fiber. Spectra® has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any synthetic or natural fiber, and it floats. The integral Maxijacket High Performance coating firms the construction, increases wear life and helps keep contaminants out of the rope.

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.

PolyPlus Braid is an affordable 12-strand single-braid rope constructed of high-tenacity polyester plied over "Para-ep" polyolefin in each individual strand.

SP-12 is a 12-strand blended rope comprised of Honeywell Spectra® fiber and polyester. This rope is designed to take advantage of the high strength and low elongation properties of Spectra® fibers while providing a slightly lower price point than 100% Spectra® ropes.

Shark Byte 12 is a 12-strand single braid product where the individual strands are a composite of copolymer olefins mixed randomly with Vectran LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer) fiber. This product is the first synthetic rope ever designed from the ground up to resist shark-bite damage.

Featured Applications

Lugger Line is a 12-strand single braid of copolymer olefins. Polypropylene and high-density polyethylene are coextruded to form the fiber. Upon cooling, the molten polyethylene and polypropylene material coalesce into a unique fiber with tenacity comparable to polyester but without the friction associated with polypropylene filament.
