PoBOn / Double Braided Polyester Sleeve Rope
Applications: Halyards, sheets, and guys.
Construction: Core: 100% Zylon PBO urethaned for abrasion resistance. Sleeve: Braid of smooth filament polyester.
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-termperature resistance.
Specific Gravity: 1.56
Color Code: Solid colors: White (40), Red (41), Blue (42), Green (43), Black (45), Gray (36), Yellow (49)
Yale PoBOn™ is a double-braided rope consisting of a polyester sleeve covering an inner load bearing core of 100% Zylon&Reg; PBO. Zylon PBO (p-phe.nylene-2, 6-benzobisoxazole), manufactured by Toyobo of Japan*, is a rigid isotropic crystal polymer. It has outstanding tensile strength, high modulus, flame resistance, and thermal stability. PBO has a slight moisture gain in the range of 0.6% and is dimensionally stable against humidity.

* Knots and abrupt bends significantly reduce the strength of all ropes and lowers 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 constitutes hazardous shock load and would void normal working load recommendation. Consult Yale Cordage for guidelines for working loads and safe use of rope.
