Maxibraid

Maxibraid Rope

Maxibraid™ is a single-braid rope constructed of UHMPE fiber. This fiber has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any synthetic or natural fiber, and it floats. The integral Maxijacket coating firms the construction, increases wear life, and helps keep contaminants out of rope. Maxibraid also has extremely low stretch, and it is laid firmer than Ultrex, sacrificing tensile strength for longevity in tough field conditions. 

Specific Gravity: 0.98

* Knots and abrupt bends significantly reduce the strength of all ropes and lowers the maximum working load.
** Working load is based on static or moderately dynamic lifting/pulling operations. Instant changes in load up or down in excess of 10% of the rope's rated working load constitutes hazardous shock load and would void normal working load recommendation. Consult Yale Cordage for guidelines for working loads and safe use of rope.
