Aracom 100 is a 12-strand rope comprised of 100% Technora® Aramid fiber. Teijin's Technora® Aramid is selected for this rope due to its ease of handling and reduced internal yarn-on-yarn friction, which greatly increases this Aramid’s longevity.

Featured Applications

Industrial
Mining

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.

Optimus is a single-braid 12-strand rope manufactured from a solution-dyed polyester and coated with our riggers-grade, abrasion-resistant coating to maximize protection. The vibrant polyester colorfast fibers are resistant to fading and provide lifelong visibility.

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.

Phantom-12 is a specially designed rope for stadium, theatre and set rigging comprised of high-heat-resistant Technora® lament fiber with a wrap of yarn of Yale’s Igrip fiber. The Technora® lament provides strength and high-heat resistance where the polyester over-wrap provides a soft hand.

Featured Applications

Stadium and Theater

Pilot Line is a 12-strand 100% polyester single braid with Maxijacket coating to improve abrasion resistance. It is used as a pilot line for stringing applications.

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

Oceanographic

Ultrex is a 12-strand single braid of Honeywell Spectra® fiber enhanced with Yale’s Maxijacket High Performance coating, which supplies superior abrasion resistance. Ultrex's braid angles and twist level are designed to optimize break strength and keep stretch low.

Vectrus is a single-braid rope of 100% Vectran™ LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer) and is always treated with Yale’s Maxijacket coating to increase abrasion resistance and enhance the fibers' UV resistance. LCP is more tolerant of tighter bending radii in terminations than other high-modulus fibers.

Yalex is a single-braid, 12-strand rope constructed of specially lubricated 1W81 high-tenacity polyester. Yalex’s two-end-per-carrier structure creates a larger void in the middle of the rope, which makes it easier to splice and makes used-rope splicing much easier to perform.

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.
