Unitrex XS Max Wear Rope

Torque free parallel cored rope of Honeywell's Spectra, 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 more like wire in its stretch characteristics. Unlike wire, it is much lighter and easily handled.

Standard - Unitrex XS Max Wear

Unitrex XS Max Wear is a parallel cored rope of Honeywell's Spectra, wrapped with a Neoprene tape and over braided with a tough jacket of high tenacity polyester. Unitrex's tough rubber layer protects its high modulus Spectra core and the outer jacket is saturated with Urethane making it the toughest UHMPE rope you can buy. All Yale Cordage's parallel core ropes are torque free, with bonded cores preventing contamination of the internal strength member. Unitrex XS can be quickly terminated and/or joined with a TechEye or TechJoin.

Advantages:
  • High strength
