Yalex - 16mm Green
Yalex is a single braid 12-strand rope constructed of Honeywell's type 1W81 high tenacity polyester. Yalex is always finished with a Maxijacket coating to optimize the abrasion life of the rope. Yalex is the strongest of all Yale's polyester ropes.
Yalex is a great all-around rope which enjoys a multitude of Arborists uses; pruner cords, whoopie slings and spider legs to name a few.
This rope supplies the toughness of tree grade Maxijacket coatings which can supply up to 8 times the abrasion resistance of uncoated rope. The rope is a snap to splice, has a great strength to weight ratio, and low stretch.
Due to it's loose braid, extreme care must be excercised when using Yalex as a lowering line to avoid snagging and rope damage.
