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.
Yalex is always coated with Yale’s Maxijacket urethane coating, which reduces the new rope’s tendency to snag, greatly enhances abrasion resistance, and is a great way to color code ropes for application or load rating.
For heavy duty industrial applications, single braided rope by Yale Cordage is the best in the business.
Yale's innovative synthetic fibers are stronger, lighter and smoother than ever before, resulting in top quality single braids that are ideal for oceanographic applications.
Yalex is a great all-around rope which enjoys a multitude of arborists uses; pruner cords, adjustable slings and spider legs to name a few.
|Diameter (Inches)||Average Spliced Break Strength *(Lbs)||Minimum Spliced Break Strength *(Lbs)||Maximum Working Load 5:1 **(Lbs)||Weight (Lbs/100f)|
* 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 409 ft. lbs./lb.
Red ultimate 10,700 ft. lbs./lb.
Specific Gravity: 1.38
Dielectric Strength: The maximum allowable leakage for clean, dry Yalex 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.
