3-Strand Standard

Contact Us
Torque balanced, soft and easy to handle sum up the properties of the 3 strand polyester. Designed to be hard wearing and resistant of kinking.

3-strand Standard Polyester represents the best all round peforming 3-strand. Where Nylon absorbs water and discolours yellow with age, Polyester retains soft and white. The rope goes through a heat treatment process to relieve constructional stresses in the fibres due to twisting and cabling during manufacture, meaning that the finished product is stable and resists kinking yet splices easily.
