Cat's Eye Ultrex
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. The 100% ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMPE) fiber has been demonstrated to have better abrasion resistance and Yale's special construction techniques maximize those characteristics.
Ultrex is a 12-strand single braid of 100% Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMPE) fiber enhanced with Yale's Maxijacket HP coating supplying superior abrasion resistance. Ultrex's braid angles and twist level are designed to optimize break strength and keep stretch low. UHMPE is the most forgiving high modulus fiber giving better bend over sheave cycling capabilities than other high tech fibers....
Aracom 100™ is a 12-strand rope comprised of 100 percent 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. Before we twist this fiber we over apply our own exclusive Aralube coating which improves its translation efficiency as we process it through our manufacturing facility...
Vectrus is a single-braided rope of 100% Vectran™ LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer) and is always treated with Yale's Maxi-jacket 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...
Tech-Kern is a Kernmantle style rope consisting of a braided Technora Aramid core covered by a 48-strand Technora mantle. If you are familiar with our Kernmaster you already know the advantages of a braided core rappelling line. The Tech-Kern was designed to bring the highest heat resistance to the market as Technora has a high melt point and acts as a heat sink when used in frictional applications as with descent devices. If heat is on your mind consider Tech-Kern.
