Polyester Solid Braid

Polyester-Solid-Braid-Rope-ClosePolyester solid braid is a firm round braided cord manufactured in a parallel construction. It is very similar in all aspects to nylon solid braid, but has a lower stretch factor under load. Polyester solid braid offers high strength and good abrasion resistance. It is resistant to most chemicals and will not mildew. It’s smooth round construction makes it excellent for use with pulleys and it holds knots extremely well. It is widely used as flagpole halyard, guy line rope, winch rope, pulley rope, starter cord, sash cord, and is used as rope handles. Solid braid polyester is available in commercial grade and also can be manufactured to meet U.S. Federal specification Mil-C-43256. This braid can be supplied in bulk put-ups, spools, mini spools and custom cut lengths. Polyester solid braid can also be supplied with a wire center core.
