PolyPlus Braid

PolyPlus Braid

PolyPlus Braid is an affordable 12-strand single braid rope constructed of high tenacity polyester plied over "Para-ep" polyolefin in each individual strand. A unique plying technique as well as a generous proportion of polyester to olefin is coupled with Yale's exclusive Aralube treatment which optimizes the ropes abrasion resistance. The "Para-ep" provides body to the rope and enhances its handling characteristics while keeping the rope's weight to a minimum. The two end per carrier structure makes the rope a snap to splice, and it is entirely torque balanced. PolyPlus Braid is the strongest single braid polyester/polyolefin blended rope available and is always manufactured with dual red strands.

* 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.
