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.

12-strand single braid, high performance polyester

PE-12 has been re-engineered, boosting its strengths significantly. Using the same high-tenacity fiber we use in our value-packed Portland Braid, this polyester single braid offers a single-end-per-carrier construction, which keeps the rope from flattening out in service and self centers in sheaves beautifully.

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.

Parallel core synthetic cable, UHMWPE from DSM core, neoprene tape, polyester sleeve

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.

12-strand 2-ply single braid, enhanced polyester yarn coating

Yalex is a single-braid 12-strand rope constructed of premium over finish polyester fiber. Yalex’s two-end-per-carrier structure creates a larger void in the middle of the rope, which makes it easier to splice and makes used-rope splicing much easier to perform.
