12-strand single braid, UHMWPE from DSM protective materials
Ultrex is a 12-strand single braid of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) fiber from DSM Protective Materials and enhanced with Yale’s Maxijacket High Performance coating, which supplies superior abrasion resistance. Ultrex's braid angles and twist level are designed to optimize break strength and keep stretch low.
12-strand single braid, bio-based SK75 Dyneema fiber
Yellow Jacket 12 is a 12-strand single braid of bio-based Dyneema® SK75 UHMPE fiber enhanced with Yale's Maxijacket High Performance Coating. The specific color pattern allows for easier identification of twisting in the rope, which can lead to a decrease in its working strength. Built tough and designed for enhanced strength to meet the rugged demands of your application, Yellow Jacket 12 is also fully Berry Compliant; both the fiber and the finished rope are proudly made in the USA.
