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.

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.
