Double Braid Cordage


NYLON DOUBLE BRAID

Double-Braid-Rope-Closeup

Double Braid Nylon is comprised of a braided core with a braided cover.  The braid over braid construction offers a high tensile strength and a excellent abrasion resistance properties.  Sometimes referred as Yacht Braid, this rope is the choice for sailing applications.  Other applications include marine lines, dock lines, tow ropes, electric utility, tree service ropes, and anchor lines.  Standard spool length is 600 feet.  Can be manufactured to Federal Specification MIL-R-24050.

POLYESTER DOUBLE BRAID

Double-Braid-Rope-Closeup

Double Braid Polyester is comprised of a braided core with a braided exterior cover.  The braid over braid construction offers high tensile strength and has excellent abrasion resistance properties.  Double Braid Polyester’s low elongation properties make it the best choice for lifting and pulling jobs such as winches and block and tackles.  Other applications include marine lines, dock lines, tow ropes, electric utility, tree service ropes, and anchor lines.  Standard spool length is 600 feet.  This braid can be manufactured to Federal Specification MIL-R-24677B.
