PoBOn is a double-braided rope consisting of a polyester sleeve covering an inner load-bearing core of 100% Zylon PBO polyester, a rigid isotropic crystal polymer. PoBOn has outstanding tensile strength, high modulus, flame resistance, and thermal stability.
It has little elastic elongation and is extremely strong. PoBOn exhibits no measurable creep and has excellent high-temperature resistance.
Construction: Core: 100% Zylon PBO urethaned for abrasion resistance. Sleeve: Braid of smooth filament polyester.
PoBON is well suited to industrial applications needing its outstanding tensile strength, high modulus, flame resistance, and thermal stability.
PoBOn can be used in sailboat racing as halyards, sheets, and guys.

* 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.
