Coatings and Techniques
Yale produces rope coatings and techniques such as fuzz fairing for a variety of industrial and other uses.
This is a spliceable urethane coating that is applied after the rope is braided. Maxijacket firms the rope, increases snag resistance, improves abrasion resistance and helps keep contaminants from entering the rope.
Yale Coat Chafe is a braided-polyester inner-lining material allowing for a smooth application while the outer heavy-duty layer of abrasion-resistant urethane provides protection against wear surfaces. This construction allows for continued flexibility in cold climates.
Maxijacket HP is a new urethane technology originating in Europe. It brings an innovative toughness to our high-modulus rope offerings. This new material is harder, penetrates better and is twice as abrasion resistant as our traditional Maxijacket coating.
Yale Cordage designs combinations of high-performance fairings specifically for the ocean environment in almost any configuration. In use, they contribute significantly to drag reduction, strum suppression and longitudinal damping.
