Maxibraid

12-strand single braid, UHMWPE from DSM protective materials

Maxibraid is a 12-strand single-braid rope constructed from Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene UHMWPE fiber. UHMWPE has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any synthetic or natural fiber, and it floats. The integral Maxijacket High Performance coating firms the construction, increases wear life and helps keep contaminants out of the rope.
