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.

Unitrex XS Max Wear, Uniline's high-tech cousin, is a parallel-core rope of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE), 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.
