Yalon / Nylon Double Braided Cordage

Yalon

Yalon™ is a double-braided rope constructed of a nylon core and sleeve. Yalon offers high energy-absorption, high strength, and controlled stretch. Yalon exceeds the strength requirements of MIL-R-24050E. Yalon is easily spliced and can be purchased with our optional Maxijacket Coating for enhanced abrasion protection or to color code lines for a given application.

* 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.
