This rope is made with 100% low stretch Polyester fiber. This rope is a good choice for tower work, lifting or pulling due to its low stretch. This rope is easily spliced for eyes or thimbles. Double Braid Polyester, jib and winch ropes are made with a thimble on one end and an eye on the other end or an eye on each end.
Applications: Winch Line Utility, Jib, Rigging Line
Industries served: Industrial, Utility
Uses: Winch Lines, Tow Lines, Jib Ropes

New Rope Tensile Strengths: New rope tensile strengths are based on tests in accordance with ASTM Test Method D-4268 on new and unused rope in laboratory condition.
Working Loads: Working loads are for rope in good condition with approximate splices, in non-critical applications, under normal service conditions. Working loads should be exceeded only with expert knowledge of conditions and professional estimates of risk. Working loads should be reduced where life, limb, or valuable property is involved, or for exceptional service conditions such as shock loads, sustained loads, etc.
The Cordage Institute specifies that the Safe Working Load of rope shall be determined by dividing the Minimum Tensile Strength by the Safety Factor. Safety factors range from 5 to 12 for non-critical uses.
