Twisted Combination Rope Heavy Duty Rope
CONSTRUCTION: Polyester yarn wrapped around premium Hi-Draw Polypropylene yarns to form a composite rope. Excellent abrasion resistance from the Polyester, plus the lite weight of the Polypropylene, make for a 2 in 1 or Combination Rope.
TENACITY: High Tenacity Tire Cord Polyester yarns provide for a general purpose twisted rope comparable to twisted Polypro with better abrasion resistance characteristics.
EXTRA FACT: Very good abrasion resistance due to Polyester yarn on outer sheath. Polypropylene center reduces cost, providing an alternative to a 100% twisted Polyester Rope. Resists oil, gas and most chemicals. Very good UV resistance.
APPLICATIONS: Hand Lines, Stage Lines, Pulling Line, Barrier Rope, Lead Lines, Catenary Lines, Truck Rope, Hoisting Line, Guy Lines, Jumper Lines, wind Skirts.
SAFE ROPE USAGE:
* Working Load / Working Load Limit
The Working Load Limit (WLL) is a guideline for the maximum allowable capacity of a rope product and should not be exceeded. Applied loads higher than a specified WLL can overstress and damage fibers, resulting in premature rope failure. The Working Load of an application should not exceed the WLL of the rope for optimal product performance and the safety of personnel and property.
** Minimum Breaking Strength
The Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS) is the force that a given rope is required to meet or exceed in a laboratory test when it is new and unused. MBS values are given in Cordage Institute Standards and individual manufacturers' specifications
There are inherent risks in the use of rope and cordage because such products are subject to higher variable conditions that change over time. Therefore Design Factor ( the ratio between the MBS and WL ) selections and Working Load Limits must be calculated with consideration of exposure to risk and actual conditions of use for each application. If in doubt, consult the manufacturer, and experienced engineer or other qualified individual regarding the design, application and selection of a rope product.
