“Eight-strand “”Square Braid”” is comprised
of eight individual strands, which are
woven together as four pairs. Its major
advantages are nonrotation and high
energy absorption. “
Hy-Dee Brait is an 8-strand bi-polymer rope with extraordinary dielectric properties. The rope is nubby, which provides excellent grip, and treated with a proprietary chemical mixture Yale calls Aralube-dielectric.
In sizes 6" through 15" circumference, Larger Nylon Brait is based on Nylon 6-6 and is a four-stage rope, laid firm and easily spliced.
Larger Polyester Brait is a 4-stage rope based on PET high-tenacity yarn, offering exceptional tension fatigue, especially wet.
Larger plaited Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) Brait. UHMWPE fiber is one of the strongest fibers known and is very low elongating. The geometry of the plaited UHMWPE allows more substantial dynamic loads to be imparted on the rope without compromising its longevity.
Nylon Brait combines braiding technology with plaited rope optimizing the best of both rope styles. Nylon Brait’s most outstanding feature is its high energy absorption, which comes from a combination of the very long yarn path and stranditure developed especially to maximize energy absorption.
Shark Byte 8 is an 8-plait construction that is a composite of copolymer olefins and polyester. It is made to match existing mooring line systems.
