Unitrex

Unitrex XS Max Wear is Uniline's high tech cousin, which is a parallel cored rope of Honeywell's Spectra, wrapped with a Neoprene tape and over braided with a tough jacket of high tenacity polyester. The result is a synthetic cable, somewhat stiffer than your usual rope, which is much like wire in its stretch characteristics. Unlike wire it is much lighter and easily handled. Due to its toughness we are comfortable assigning it a higher working load rating which is 25% of its breaking strength. Unitrex XS Max Wear has high strength retention in service which is supported by field studies and our long standing track record with Uniline polyester. Unitrex's tough rubber layer protects its high modulus Spectra core and the outer jacket is saturated with Urethane making it the toughest UHMPE rope you can buy. All Yale's parallel core ropes are torque free, with bonded cores preventing contamination of the internal strength member. Unitrex XS can be quickly terminated and/ or joined with a TechEye™ or TechJoin™

Dielectric Strength: The maximum allowable leakage for clean, dry Unitrex is 50 Micro Amperes when tested at 90KV per ASTM 1701-05 "Routine Production Test". Absorbed and entrained moisture or impurities will increase ropes conductivity dramatically.
