Phillystran® Polyester Ropes

Phillystran® Polyester Ropes

Phillystran, Inc. is pleased to offer ropes manufactured from large filament, high tenacity polyester fiber. Carefully selected special yarn finishes, combined with top grade polyester fiber and built in a unique 7 strand wirelay construction result in a polyester rope with superior properties when compared to conventional polyester ropes. These ropes have proven to exceed the fatigue life of wire rope, while demonstrating to be more durable than nylon or aramid fiber products. The ropes' 7 strand core is protected by an overbraid of the same high performance fiber. High tenacity polyester fiber provides excellent dimensional stability in the manufacture of ropes for marine, military, and industrial applications. Phillystran polyester ropes are intended for applications where moderate elasticity may be useful, but superior strength and durability are essential.

Weights and Dimensions can vary

CAUTION: Break Strength: The breaking strength of a rope is the load at which a new rope will break when tested under laboratory conditions. Break strength should not be mistaken for safe working load. Safe Working Load: Because of the wide range of rope use, rope condition and the degree of risk of life or property, it is not possible to make a blanket recommendation for safe working load. It is ultimately dependent on the rope user to determine what percentage of break strength is their own safe working load. Wear: Ropes wear out with use; the more severe the usage, the greater the wear. It is often not possible to detect wear on a rope by visible signs alone. Therefore, it is recommended that the rope user determine a retirement criteria for ropes in their application. For assistance in developing safe working load and retirement criteria for each application please call or write Phillystran, Inc.
