Polypropylene Solid Braid

Polypropylene solid braid is a firm round braided cord manufactured in a parallel construction. Manufactured from multi-filament polypropylene yarns, this braid has an appearance and feel similar to nylon. Solid braid polypropylene will not absorb water and will float. It is resistant to most chemicals and will not mildew. This light weight braid is available in several colors and color combinations. It is widely used as flag pole halyard, horse leads, tent lines, tie down lines, barricade rope, rope handles, and decorative rope. Polypropylene solid braid is available in bulk put-ups, spools, mini-spools, or custom cut lengths. This braid is also available with a wire center core.
