Ultrex Plus / UMHPE Core Polyester Sleeve Rope

Ultrex Plus Rope

Applications: Halyards, sheets, guys and control lines.

Construction: Core: Double braid of UHMWPE (SK75 or Spectra 1000) core, treated with Maxijacket coating for enhanced toughness. Sleeve: Yale's Thin Sleeve Technology (TST) polyester cover.

Ultrex Plus is a double braid of UHMWPE core, treated with Maxijacket coating for enhanced toughness and is color matched with the high tenacity polyester sleeve. Spliceable utilizing conventional high modulus splice technique, or the Yaletuck splice, which shortens the bury portion and minimizes the length and the larger diameter associated with the splice. All strengths shown are for spliced line.

Specific Gravity: 1.18

 

Color Code: Solid colors: White (40), Red (41), Blue (42), Green (43), Black (45), Gray (36), Yellow (49)

* 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.
