Cortland Double Braid – Nylon

Nylon Double Braid is the preferred choice for applications requiring high strength with excellent shock absorbing properties. Double Braid has good resistance to abrasion, sunlight and chemicals. Due to its high elongation, nylon is almost always used in applications involving shock loading such as anchor lines and mooring lines.

Nylon Double Braid is delivered standard with an overlay marine finish.

Tensile Strengths are determined in accordance with Cordage Institute 1500, Test Methods for Fiber Rope. Weights are calculated at linear density under standard preload (200d2) plus 4%. See reverse side for application and safety information.

Please note that the Minimum Tensile Strengths of Black Nylon Double Braid products are normally 10% below published specifications. Type Approval of Nylon Double Braid does not apply to Black Nylon Double Braid.
