Cordage Construction & Fiber
Solid Braids Constructed to maintain size & roundness by resisting rotation overpulleys and under loads. Solid Braids are manufactured on 9, 12, 18 or 20 strand braiders, depending on upon the size of the cord. Many solid braids are reinforced with strands of a synthetic fiber used as a core for increasing strength and durability.
Diamond Braids Constructed in a maypole over and under braid in 8, 12 & 16 strand. Available in a traditional 8 strand braid and smooth braid.
Braided Ropes Consist of a braided cover over a braided core.Cover will
have from 16 to 32 strands singly or in pairs. Cover and core share load
equally in balanced construction. Cover to core fiber ration is usually
1 to 1.
Nylon Offers high tensile strength, high elasticity, energy absorption & impact resistance, high melting point (480?)
Polyester Offers high tensile strength, low elastic elongation, high melting point (480?) and good abrasion resistance.
Polypropylene (Multifilament) Soft and flexible and has the feel of nylon. Strength is about ½ of nylon with a low melting point (330?). A light weight fiber with a high positive buoyancy which allows it to float.
Polyethylene Similar to Polypropylene fiber, retains memory and slicker than polypropylene. Has better UV protection. Heavier than Polypropylene and offers more abrasion resistance. It also has a high buoyancy, which allows it to float.
wicking ability, soft non-scouring surface and superior knot retention.
We offer a 100% cotton cover and core.. both glazed and unglazed.
We also offer a number of grades of the more traditional
sash cord in a solid braid with a reinforced synthetic core.
